Data on use of a computer-marked on-line assessment in engineering education over the course of five years
This fileset presents the data obtained though implementing an on-line computer-marked assessment in a second-year core civil engineering course in an Australian university. The data is gathered on-line in five years from the first year of implementing this quiz in 2011 to 2015. Students were allowed to attempt the quiz multiple times over a certain period of time, longer than a week. A large question bank was constructed with several variants for each question. Students faced randomly selected variants of questions in each attempt. At the end of assessment period, the best score of each student was recorded as their mark for the quiz. An anonymous on-line survey was conducted every year after the end of the assessment period in which students were asked to answer a number of questions and provide their opinion about the quiz.
The data presented
here includes students’ marks in each attempt, the time they spent on each
attempt, and anonymous survey results.
