Applications of computer-aided assessment in the diagnosis of science learning & teaching

Johnnie W.F. Muwanga-Zake, The Centre for the Advancement of Science & Mathematics Education


Abstract
This paper reports on the validation of test items that was necessary to prepare diagnostic items, and on the values teachers and learners attached to Computer-Aided Assessment (CAA). The diagnostic potential of CAA was revealed in evaluations, which included teachers and learners. However, the quality of diagnosis and remediation depended upon teachers' capacity to set diagnostic test items particularly in a multiple-choice format, teachers' ability to interpret data produced by CAA, teachers' skills in remedying their classroom as well as learners' problems, the quality of the test items, and the learning as well as the teaching strategies.
