Development and Design of a Dynamic Multimedia Item Generation Mechanism
Weng, Ting-Sheng
Journal of Educational Technology Systems, v40 n1 p59-73 2011-2012
This research applies multimedia technology to design a dynamic item generation method that can adaptively adjust the difficulty level of items according to the level of the testee. The method is based on interactive testing software developed by Flash Actionscript, and provides a testing solution for users by automatically distributing items of different levels of difficulty, according to the level of the testee. In addition, it resolves the situation of a user "always getting the right answer" on easy items, or "always getting the wrong answer" on difficult items. This system can adjust the level of difficulty of items according to students' levels, as well as provide dynamic feedback functions that are better than a mere summation of all items in a static assessment.
