Abstract

Multiple choice (MC) tests are typically used for formative assessments in eLearning. However, the interaction bandwidth of traditional MC tests is severely limited; students can only make a tick on an answer option. Therefore the eLearning system needs to make assumptions to fill-in the gaps. Nevertheless, the system’s assumption may be wrong. A student may guess a correct answer or may make a careless mistake. If an eLearning system often makes stereo-typed pedagogical decisions based on wrong assumptions, eventually, the students would get frustrated. This research describes an artificial intelligent based methodology that could provide individualized test sequencing and personalized feedback.
