Questions you may have include:
- What are methods to verify knowledge?
This lesson will answer those questions.
CBT programs with web plug-ins
Standard CBT development programs like Macromedias Authorware and Asymetrixs Toolbook have browser plug-ins that allow their CBT applications to be used on the web. Unfortunately, not only must the user have the plug-in installed, but the time it takes for pages to download is often excessive. There must be an easier way to present class content that does not strain the users capability to view the material.
Methods to verify knowledge
- Multiple choice
- Verifying text input
Feedback as to whether or not the answer is correct can be shown as an alert box or an indication shown on the browser status bar. The students score can also be tabulated.
Example of multiple choice
Sending data to the teacher
A copy of the test can be sent directly to the teacher via an e-mail submit button, provided the student has an e-mail account through the school or internet provider. A better way to get the test is through Common Gateway Interface (CGI), but that is not easy to program.
