Increase in Testing Efficiency through the Development of an IT-Based Adaptive Testing Tool for Competency Measurement Applied to a Health Worker Training Test Case
Kleinhans, Janne; Schumann, Matthias
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on e-Learning (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain, Jul 21-24, 2015)
In the context of education and training, competency measurement (CM) is a central challenge in competency management. For complex CMs, a compromise must be addressed between the time available and the number of dimensions to be measured or the quality of the measurements. Increasing the efficiency of existing tests for CMs therefore poses a key challenge. An important approach to this challenge is computerized adaptive testing. For CMs, there is currently a lack of integrated adaptive testing tools. This paper presents the implementation, integration and evaluation of an appropriate adaptive component for the example of the learning management system ILIAS used for a CM of health workers. The textbook scenario of a linear testing implementation is compared with concrete results from the adaptive testing tool implementation, and the potential for increasing the test efficiency is demonstrated.
