Transforming a competency model to assessment items
At 4th International Conference on Web Information Systems and Technologies (WEBIST), Portugal.
04 - 07 May 2008.
The problem of comparing and matching different learners’ knowledge arises when assessment systems use a one-dimensional numerical value to represent “knowledge level”. Such assessment systems may measure inconsistently because they estimate this level differently and inadequately. The multi-dimensional competency model called COMpetence-Based learner knowledge for personalized Assessment (COMBA) is being developed to represent a learner’s knowledge in a multi-dimensional vector space. The heart of this model is to treat knowledge, not as possession, but as a contextualized space of capability either actual or potential. The paper discusses the automatic generation of an assessment from the COMBA competency model as a “guide-on-the–side”.
