An Interactive Computer Quizzing System to Support the Proctorial System of Instruction.
Wagner, G. R.; McCants, M. M.
The proctorial system of instruction requires the administration of frequent quizzes that measure the student's readiness to proceed to the next unit of instruction. With the support of Project C-BE, a computer program was written which permits students to take quizzes using on-line conversational commands, or to answer the questions at another location and return to the computer terminal at a later time. The system allows the proctor to accomodate twice as many quiz takers, and it provides him with more release time for tutoring students. Students have been receptive to the use of the system. This document details the features of the system, describes the computer files and it provides sample routines used by the quiz takers. (EMH)
