Research on Automatic Assessment of Transferable Skills

Jinbiao Li, Ming Gu

Abstract

Automatic Assessment is an important research subject in Computer Assisted Assessment. However, for transferable skills, which have become important talent criteria in the talent standard of modern service industry and higher education, there are few universal and effective automatic assessment methods. In order to improve the efficiency of the assessment of transferable skills, and provide methodology foundation for automatic assessment of transferable skills, this paper combines the automatic assessment methods based on operation result and operation sequence, and proposes an automatic assessment method for transferable skills. This method includes four parts: definition of user behavior model, collection mechanism of user operation sequence, rule matching algorithm, and weighted score summary. In addition, this paper introduces an instantiated application in a virtual simulation environment to evaluate the proposed method.
