Cognitive Apprenticeship Learning - Ensuring Far Transfer of Knowledge Through Computer-Based Assessment
The notion of computer-based assessment encompasses both the formative and summative assessments. The former provides opportunities for self-testing and is crucial for convincing the learners that they have learnt something. The latter periodically attempts to assess learner performance. This chapter discusses the central role of formative assessment in the design of tutoring systems and how computer-based assessment has been implemented in the ‘Byzantium’ intelligent tutoring system. Byzantium was produced by a consortium of six Universities under the Teaching & Learning Technology Programme (TLTP) of the UK Higher Education Funding Councils and has been independently evaluated at a Scottish University.
