Computer-based Testing and Strategies for Distance Learning.
Gibbs, William J.
TestMaker is a project in which computer-based programs are being developed to help educators create tests. The program was designed as an instructional and developmental tool for teacher-education students. TestMaker consists of four modules: Advisement; Test Creation; Student Test; and Presentation Analysis. The Advisement module runs concurrently with the Test Creation module and provides users with system-generated advice and user-selected advice related to effective test construction. All question items, correct answers, alternatives, and feedback created in the Test Creation module are presented in the Student Test module; during testing, student responses, elaboration and instructional time are recorded in a file which can later be reviewed by the instructor. The Presentation Analysis module was designed as a presentation tool for distance learning; it assists in the analysis of questions by allowing the instructor to log the number of students agreeing and disagreeing with each question alternative. Future developments with the TestMaker project will investigate the possibility of testing students at remote distance learning sites. (Contains 11 references.) (AEF)
