TOWARDS BUILDING FAIR AND ACCURATE EVALUATION ENVIRONMENTS

Dumitru Dan Burdescu, Marian Cristian Mihăescu

Abstract

Each e-Learning platform has implemented means of evaluating learner’s knowledge by a specific grading methodology. This paper proposes a methodology for obtaining knowledge about the testing environment. The obtained knowledge is further used in order to make the testing system more accurate and fair. Integration of knowledge management into an e-Learning system is accomplished through a dedicated software module that analyzes learner’s performed activities, creates a learner’s model and provides a set of recommendations for course managers and learners in order to achieve prior set goals.
