Description

A new method to assess student learning was implemented for IE 305 Engineering Economic Analysis. Students were evaluated with online testing modules which they could take repeatedly until they passed. Questions were randomized; very unlikely that a student ever received the exact same question. Goal: Evaluate students’ performance when they are allowed multiple attempts of online tests and compare student performance to traditional assessment methods.
