Web-based assessment, multiple choice tests
The main theme of this paper is design and implementation of
multiple-choice tests as a part of a computer-aided learning system
in teaching mathematics on the undergraduate level, using free
open-source software components. We are focusing on web-based
assessment management software that is designed to diagnose stu-
dents’ progress and relate assessment with classroom instructions.
Multiple-choice tests are used as self-evaluation, compulsory assign-
ments, and mid-term exams. Our experience indicates that the
assessment system is a very good tool for predicting overall stu-
dent performance as well as for assisting the lecturer in analyzing
students’ level of knowledge and understanding.
