Abstract

There are some subjects that require a high level of skill practice and knowledge acquisition. Many of these are related with mathematical content. In particular, logic for computer science is a good example. There are some interesting tools and systems available for e-assessments of this kind of subjects in higher education, but none of them is providing rich feedback in a qualitative manner. In this paper, we describe a technology-enhanced assessment system for assessing both skill and knowledge acquisition in online higher education while adhering to e-learning and e-assessment standards and specifications. This technological requirement is achieved through designing a system which allows the integration of existing partially effective tools with common Learning Management Systems (LMSs) according to standard conformance. The system is designed and developed in a way that it can be used as modules to existing systems or LMSs. The reason for doing this is that institutes who are interested in the system can use the tool as a module integrated to their existing system which maintains interoperability.
