Abstract

This paper is a report on the work done at the K.U.Leuven on the development of electronic tests and remediation exercises for accountancy students. To be able to present accounting-style exercises is one thing; to automatically correct them in the same way a teacher would, is another. The first part (the presentation) was covered and solved in the K.U.Leuven GIZEH project, presented at E-Learn 2002. The tool at that point lacked, however, the capabilities to give meaningful feedback and accurate scores. Scores did not at all reflect the score one would actually receive in a human-corrected exam. Since then new efforts have led to a new tool that, using a large set of pre-defined rules, is able to give feedback specific to each mistake made, as well as a score that better reflects what one would receive in an exam.
