Abstract

The ability to assess learning hinges on the quality of the instruments that are used. This paper reports on the first stage of the design of software to assist educators in ensuring assessment questions meet educational outcomes. A literature review was undertaken to establish a framework for the classification of instructional statements according to learning complexity. It focussed on taxonomies of learning outcomes to develop an Instructional Activity Matrix that identifies nouns and verbs used to describe the types of knowledge and cognitive processes manifest in learning. The matrix is described here and will form the basis for the software to autonomously evaluate instructional items.
