The design, development and evaluation of a computer-based testing system: An innovative approach to diagnostic placement of students in a bridging mathematics program

posted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by Kathryn EgeaKathryn Egea
"Bridging students aiming to attend university need to bridge the gaps in their mathematical knowledge. For this, they need a confirmation of their current knowledge status, and individual study schedules to advance their knowledge within the bridging program. Yet there is very little literature available to guide the design of suitable testing programs or diagnostic procedures, particularly for students studying independently at a distance. To address this problem, a working prototype has been designed and developed to provide a student self-administered, computer-based diagnostic testing model for placement of students enrolled in a distance educational university bridging mathematics program..." -- abstract.
