This research study aims to explore the influence of multimedia and text formats on student performance in the multimedia exams. The focus group is the 390 students who took an online, self-paced undergraduate course in Department of Anthropology at the University of Texas at Austin in fall 2001. Vexam was the assessment tool for the class. The test items, created by Vexam, were multiple-choice items and consisted of text, movie clips, and/ or pictures; they were categorized in the two groups, multimedia and text only. The research question is whether there is a significant relationship between the use of multimedia and text only formats and item difficulty levels in the exams. An exploratory research study and result will be presented.
