Computer-assisted assessment in computer science: Issues and software
Simon Rawles, Mike Joy and Michael Evans. Computer-assisted assessment in computer science: Issues and software. Technical Report CS-RR-387, Department of Computer Science, University of Warwick, Coventry, UK, February 2002.
As student numbers and lecturer workloads increase, traditional methods of assessment make it progressively more difficult to conduct effective assessment and provide students with detailed, specific feedback. Therefore, academic institutions are considering ways of automating their assessment methods, at least in part. This automation is realised by computer assisted assessment (CAA) software. Though CAA software has been proven in some limited situations, it remains a technology which is yet to come of age pedagogically. In this report we discuss the issues of incorporating computer-assisted assessment into university-level teaching, in particular in Computer Science, and give an overview of the software available and its capabilities.
