|CAA Centre >> Outcomes|
This page provides information on the main outcomes of the CAA Centre.
A national survey was conducted in 1999. The survey was a comprehensive evaluation of the level of current activity in CAA across the UK higher education sector. It helped to identify good practice as well providing an insight into the attitudes towards and perceptions of CAA. The survey consisted of a quantitative questionnaire, distributed widely to four key groups, interviews with individuals and focus groups at selected institutions.
Several papers were presented at conferences detailing the results of the survey.
Blueprint for Computer-assisted Assessment
The 'Blueprint for Computer-assisted Assessment' is a comprehensive document addressing the pedagogical, operational, technological and strategic issues faced by those adopting CAA. The Blueprint provides a wealth of research based good practice and a range of models and guidelines for the strategic implementation of CAA within departments, faculties and institutions. It can also be used to support a range of staff development and training materials.
For more information see the Blueprint section.
Staff Development Materials
The Centre facilitated over 40 staff development workshops during it's three year life. A wide range of topics were addressed including:
An online tutorial in designing objective test items was created. See the Resources Section.
International CAA Conference
During the life of the project, the International Computer-assisted Assessment Conference organised by consortium members at Loughborough University gained widespread recognition and more than doubled in size. For more details on the Conferences see:
