Planning and Development of an Interactive Computerised Assessment System

Abstract

ICAS was planned and developed as an interactive computerised assessment system in order to provide an alternative learning experience for students and to achieve a more efficient use of teaching time. It was not designed to replace bedside specialised subject area teaching. Instead, it supplements paper-based learning, but is more fun than a book, and appears much better visually. It can be described as a learner support environment, because it assumes that the intelligence resides largely with the student and thus it concentrates on providing optimal conditions for learning. It makes use of interactive CAL, by promoting active learning in which there are high degrees of participation and involvement by the student.
