Level III; A Computerized Student Assessment System.
Sorlie, William E.; Jones, Les A.
A computer-assisted, diagnostic assessment system (Level III) is described that has been implemented on an IBM 370/155 and is written in Coursewriter III, Version 3. The function of this system is to administer a series of 10 examinations to 64 first year medical students. The system fulfills the University of Illinois School of Medicine's assessment goals by providing a diagnostic, nongraded system which furnishes students with continuous feedback on their progress. Students have responded favorably to their Level III experience. They especially appreciate the immediacy of the feedback after each exam (printout) and the complete listing and reference information given for each uncorrected question. In addition to availability through Coursewriter systems, a version of Level III is being prepared for use on the PLATO IV computer system. (WCM)
