World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2005 (Jun 27, 2005) pp. 3032–3034
This work presents an open-source Computer Assisted Mathematical Problem Understanding and Solving (CAMPUS) framework which offers an environment that allows the student to develop problem solving strategies in complex situations. The tool imposes...
British Journal of Educational Psychology Vol. 81, No. 4 (December 2011) pp. 606–628
Background: Girls are considerably less interested in scientific subjects than boys. One reason may be that scientific subjects are considered to be genuinely masculine. Thus, being interested in science may threaten the self-perception of girls as...
Visual Spatial Math Training Tool: An iPad Application for Training Visual-Spatial Abilities in Preschoolers
EdMedia: World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2016 (Jun 28, 2016) pp. 1594–1602
In this paper, we present a full-fledged educational iOS application called Visual-Spatial Math Training (VSMT), which has been developed to improve cognitive abilities in preschoolers. VSMT is a tablet-based application that has been designed for...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2013 (Jun 24, 2013) pp. 1155–1164
This paper describes how usability affects the usage of a computer-based assessment (CBA) instrument. The aim of our current study is twofold: a) the development of a usability improved CBA instrument (ISO 9241-11, 1998; ISO 9241-210, 2010) within...
EdMedia: World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2014 (Jun 23, 2014) pp. 859–868
This paper focuses on the user-centered design of a computer-based assessment (CBA) instrument for knowledge measurement. We describe relevant design steps in general and illustrate them via the design of our usability improved CBA concept map...
Concept maps: A useful and usable tool for computer-based knowledge assessment? A literature review with a focus on usability
Computers & Education Vol. 78, No. 1 (September 2014) pp. 201–209
The concept map is now widely accepted as an instrument for the assessment of conceptual knowledge and is increasingly being embedded into technology-based environments. Usability addresses how appropriate (for a particular use) or how user-friendly ...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2006 (June 2006) pp. 2216–2221
The TAO framework is an open-source project which provides a very general and open architecture for computer-assisted test development and delivery. In order to illustrate the power and the flexibility implied by the TAO framework, several use cases ...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2004 (2004) pp. 114–116
The present work consists in the development of a modular, distributed architecture for internet-based computer assisted testing. Although the presented framework is flexible enough to be used as a tool for large-scale summative assessments, it has...
Covering Different Levels of Evaluation Needs by an Internet-Based Computer-Assisted Testing Framework for Collaborative Distributed Test Development and Delivery
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2005 (Jun 27, 2005) pp. 3715–3720
The present paper tries to give an overview of the different evaluation needs that can be found in an educational context, showing that these needs are situated at different institutional steering levels. This analysis shows that the requirement of...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2008 (Jun 30, 2008) pp. 5065–5070
Educational multimedia focuses traditionally on the design of computer aided learning environments. Evaluation has to be viewed as an essential part of the learning environment. Beyond opportunities provided by its computerization (behaviours...
International Journal of Emerging Technologies in Learning (iJET) Vol. 13, No. 10 (Oct 26, 2018) pp. 225–251
Although student self-assessment is positively related to achievement, skepticism about the accuracy of students’ self-assessments remains. A few studies have shown that even elementary school students are able to provide accurate self-assessments...
Students' exploration strategies in computer-simulated complex problem environments: A latent class approach
Computers & Education Vol. 126, No. 1 (November 2018) pp. 248–263
Complex problem solving (CPS) is considered an important educational achievement indicator. Previous research has indicated that CPS performance depends to a substantial extent on the way students explore problem environments. In this study, we...

International Journal of Emerging Technologies in Learning (iJET) Vol. 13, No. 8 (Aug 30, 2018) pp. 4–18
Given that the use of educational technologies is increasingly popular in kindergarten and among young students, these technologies have been shown to be able to solve the difficulties (existing in school) that are either not possible to be solved...
The Computer-Based Assessment of Complex Problem Solving and How It Is Influenced by Students' Information and Communication Technology Literacy
Journal of Educational Psychology Vol. 106, No. 3 (August 2014) pp. 666–680
The 21st-century work environment places strong emphasis on nonroutine transversal skills. In an educational context, complex problem solving (CPS) is generally considered an important transversal skill that includes knowledge acquisition and its...
