Developing and Integrating a Web-Based Quiz into the Curriculum.
Carbone, Angela; Schendzielorz, Peter
In 1996, the Department of Computer Science at Monash University (Australia) implemented a First Year Advanced Students' Project Scheme aimed at extending and stimulating its best first year students. The goal of the scheme was to give students the opportunity to work on a project that best suited their needs and captured their interests. One of the projects, which became known as CADAL (Computer Aided Dynamic Assessment & Learning) Quiz, involved designing and implementing a World Wide Web-based multiple choice quiz generator and assessment tool. At the same time, there were several academics wishing to move away from the traditional mode of educational assessment toward interactive, computerized assessment. As a result, CADAL Quiz was incorporated into the First Year Computer Programming unit and used by lecturers, tutors, and students. This paper reports on a pilot project for developing and integrating CADAL Quiz into the curriculum. It highlights the unique quiz features and its use by students and staff. The paper describes how the quiz was incorporated into the unit and presents a conduit of attitudes useful to those planning to use the Web as a resource for educational assessment. (Author/AEF)
