Abstract

In the light of different existing standards it is investigated what can be assessed by e-tests, i.e. by tests in e-learning. In this way, potential and limits of such tests are outlined and illustrated by examples most of all from mathematics and computer architecture. The results of a little field study conducted in the authors lectures are given: analysis of teacher-learner-interaction not only reveals how to map question-answer to tests of the learning outcome in e-learning applications but also in which directions these standardized tests ought to be extended. Additionally, implications for the design of intelligent tutoring systems are discussed.
