Computer-Assisted Test Construction.
Lippey, Gerald, Ed.
The purpose of this book is to document in detail the benefits which can be realized by computer-assisted test construction and to aid educators interested in taking advantage of computers in providing tests and exercises. An overview of all the benefits and problems of computer-assisted test construction is given. Then separate chapters are devoted to discussions of item banking (including item generation), question classification and storage (also question selection systems), printing tests (format and graphics), the role of statistics, pedagogical implications (present and future applications), and systems considerations. An extensive bibliography of the field is appended. (WH)
