Automatic Generation of Tests from Domain and Multimedia Ontologies

The aim of this article is to present an approach for generating tests in an automatic way. Although other methods have been already reported in the literature, the proposed approach is based on ontologies, representing both domain and multimedia knowledge. The article also reports on a prototype implementation of this approach, which automatically creates tests using the Semantic Web standard technology OWL (Ontology Web Language) as well as proper annotations of images. The proposed approach is independent of specific domain characteristics, since question items are generated according to generic ontology-based strategies. In the presented prototype implementation, simple natural language generation techniques are used to project the items in the tests. (Contains 6 notes, 4 tables, and 5 figures.)
