Writing Processing in a Trial Version of the Computer Based University Entrance Examination: A Way to Motivate Curriculum Change in Spain
Garcia Laborda, Jesus; Magal Royo, Teresa; Enriquez Carrasco, Emilia
Online Submission, Paper presented at the CALL Conference (14th, Antwerp, Belgium, Aug 18-20, 2010)
This paper presents the results of writing processing among 260 high school senior students, their degree of satisfaction using the new trial version of the Computer Based University Entrance Examination in Spain and their degree of motivation towards written online test tasks. Currently, this is one of the closing studies to verify whether Spanish students would be sufficiently prepared to move from the traditional pen-and-paper test to an online version. In order, to analyze their responses, we compared the different productions done and recorded by a testing system of their responses to an essay task. The final goal was to understand whether they the current significant changes in the test may prevent or motivate them towards a computer based high stakes test. As opposed to general CALL, high stakes compulsory test may have a negative effect. This study, on the contrary, supports the implementation of such test.
