ADAPTIVE E-ASSESSMENT APPLICATION SCENARIO - A Framework and Concept for the Integration of askme! in Higher Education

André Schulz, Christian Saul

Abstract

To provide the expertise to apply learned knowledge in practice is one main challenge of higher education. Especially, the engineering graduates need to solve complex problems in their profession and apply specific expertise in various contexts. These demands encompass less recalling of factual knowledge, but more comprehensive key competencies like problem-solving expertise. In this paper, the Adaptive Assessment System askme! is used to address this challenge. The authors discuss the general conditions of the education of a course in theoretical computer science offered for students of a Bachelor degree program. Furthermore, this paper provides an application scenario in which the applied learning platform Moodle will be extended by adaptive methods of assessment.
