Summary

The rapid development and integration of computer-assisted assessment (CAA) in mainstream post-compulsory educational institutions today make this an exciting and invaluable reference text. It provides a practical, research-based guide on a subject that is becoming increasingly important as educational assessment changes and grows.

The book addresses theory and practice, offering a comprehensive evaluation of many
key aspects of CAA such as:

* question and test design, scoring and analysis, and feedback and integration with other assessment methods
* the role of CAA in feedback processes
* wider use of technology to support and enhance assessment
* technical, operational and support issues.

The authors present a lucid,balanced analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of CAA. This text will appeal to all those involved in higher or further education who wish to model their CAA systems on the best practice available.
