Investigating the nature and design of computer programming examinations

Start: 2011
Report Publication Date: N/A
Primary Project Leader Judithe Sheard

Funding
Amount: $10,000.00 Body: Australian Council of Deans of ICT (ACDICT) Source: ALTA
Summary
The aim of this project is to investigate the nature and composition of formal examination instruments used in summative assessment of programming students, and the pedagogical intentions of the educators who construct these instruments. This will be done by analysis of a set of programming exams using a purpose?designed classification scheme, along with interviews with the educators who design and use these exams. This project will build upon a work begun by the project team in collaboration with seven other colleagues from institutions in Australia and overseas. This project will form the foundation for a future project which will build a searchable repository of exam questions classified according to the classification scheme, and a tool to enable construction of programming exam papers according to the requirements of the examiner.
