Abstract

The aim of this project is to investigate, implement and evaluate a computer aided assessment (CAA) scheme for large groups studying Audio Systems modules. The CAA is to be integrated with web-based content and an on-line experiment currently being developed as part of the University e-Learning Initiative. Academic and training organizations have generally used CAA to benefit the organization rather than the student. The assessment load on staff and the time to mark assessments are generally reduced. In most cases, the computer is used to efficiently deliver and mark a traditional, paper-based test, rather than providing a fundamentally different approach. In other circumstances, formative, self-evaluation quizzes are provided on-line, with the summative assessment being provided in a traditional way. In this project, because the CAA will be integrated within a web-based environment and because of the target topic area of Audio Systems, the student learning experience will be significantly enhanced. In a traditional context, many aspects of Audio Systems are difficult or impossible to deliver, as the acoustics of the classroom interfere with audio phenomena being demonstrated. With each student using headphones at their computer, the audio phenomena can be delivered accurately to individuals. This allows both the delivery and assessment of more appropriate learning outcomes.
