Derek Chirnside::My dream::Automated formative assessment for Pre health course
Cloud created by:
13 January 2013
This is a fairly routine type of activity. For a totally online course (actually the onramp to a longer face-face course)
Context: Ski patrol Pre Hospital Emergency care course.
Tools: I have access to Moodle with a few question addons (the drag and drop types from the OU: https://moodle.org/plugins/browse.php?list=category&id=29
Trying to avoid complext tools so tutors can actually tweak questions/add/reuse questions etc.
- my first problem has to do with the level of questions. I know we can create matching, drag and drop, multichoice type questions quite easily. However short answers are a problem: there is no built in manually marked short answer type in Moodle, nor any add-ons that I know about.
- Next, what can be done to create automated higher order questions?
- Thirdly, I've had difficulty getting good images. I've tried various places, and have a few more leads to follow up. eg: given this scenario, what would you do first, and to have video/image as well as text/audio.
A very small niche market: there are not many ski patrol schools around.
How to package this to it runs nicely.
