MARTIN, H., 2006. Formative assessment using CAA: an early exploration of the SLIM pilot project. IN: Danson, M.

Supporting Learning in Mathematics (SLIM) pilot project: Can the research on
formative assessment be applied to the use of a computer aided assessment
(CAA) tool to enhance student learning?
The pilot project consisted of an initial online questionnaire and five ‘study
sessions’ using QuestionMark Perception (QMP) with the BEd year 1 cohort
at the University of Aberdeen. This short paper intends to stimulate a dialogue
about how to meet the professional challenge of changing learner expectation
and, in particular,
(a) How to design ‘rich’ questions
(b) How to provide meaningful feedback in a computer mediated environment.
by using a preliminary exploration of the data from the pilot project.
