• Automatically marked summative assessment using internet tools

      Penfold, Brian (University of Wolverhampton, 2001)
      With very large groups, individual assessment is becoming increasingly difficult. We are constantly aware of the cost of the time taken in traditional forms of assessment and the effect of marking fatigue on quality. The system described here is a ‘home-grown’ system to present summative multiple-choice question (MCQ) papers in an efficient, cost effective and simple way. The system directly replaces manually marked MCQ tests and because of its nature opens up new more sophisticated multimedia assessment formats.
