Content:

This workshop provides an opportunity to examine the potential of Computer Assisted Assessment (CAA) for formative and summative use. The workshop will look at the types and design of CAA questions and good practice in question writing.  Measures of question quality and marking schemes will also be discussed.  During the practical session, participants will have the opportunity to create an online assessment using QuestionMark Perception, the assessment software supported by the University.  It will be possible to explore a range of question types (including using imported images). Participants are encouraged to bring along module material on which they can base their questions. We will then create, schedule and assign candidates to an assessment, and deliver the assessment.  Use of reports and exporting data based on assessments will also be examined.
