A Genre-Based Perspective for the Development of Communicative Computerized Adaptive Tests
Journal of Educational Technology & Society Volume 11, Number 1, ISSN 1176-3647 e-ISSN 1176-3647
This paper discusses the communicative potentials of Computerized Adaptive Testing. The study is based on a model that offers a set of independent communicative concepts to describe the Genre of an interactive application. This model will be the starting point to analyze the stages of the interaction cycle that are typically inherent to every generator of computerized adaptive tests. In each of these stages, the authors present the most appropriate communication structures that should support the intentions of the developers of this kind of software. The paper finishes giving a synthesis of the interactive potential of these communication stages from a Genre perspective, and discussing the compatibility between the proposed approach and some model-based methods that are currently used during the design of interactive applications. (Contains 5 tables and 4 figures.)
