Worsening staff-student ratios make it harder to provide adequate assessment and prompt feedback, two quantities important in student learning. Computers and the Internet can provide a solution to this problem. This paper describes a Web-based tool used for skills practice and summative assessment. The tool delivers individualized tasks, marks student responses, supplies prompt feedback, and logs student activity. An action research program has been undertaken in order to develop the software… CONTINUE READING
