Park, Jooyong; Choi, Byung-Chul – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2008
A new computerised testing system was used at home to promote learning and also to save classroom instruction time. The testing system combined the features of short-answer and multiple-choice formats. The questions of the multiple-choice problems were presented without the options so that students had to generate answers for themselves; they…
