In WP5 – Implementation with case studies – one of the activities was to use the case studies collected for test and evaluate the web-based e-assessment platform, especially its usability and the quality of the results on selected case studies and by real users.
First phase testing was done with 18 collected case studies and performed by the project partners to see if the suggested e-assessment methods are closely related to the defined learning outcomes. The results showed that the majority of the teachers have defined the appropriate e-assessment methods for the learning outcomes. In some cases, the TALOE web tool suggested additional possibilities in terms of e-assessment methods. For several cases the TALOE web tool indicated that the existing assessment methods should be revised.
Second phase testing was done with invited stakeholders. The analysis of received feedback showed a positive evaluation regarding the usability of the tool and the quality of the output/results, i.e. the e-assessment method suggestions. Invited users found this tool easy to use and useful but would like to see it improved for more complex testing. These results also confirmed that the web tool provides support and guidance to teachers to formulate the learning outcomes in accordance to Bloom taxonomy, as intended and planned by the task. It also increases the accuracy of e-assessment methods received by the tool and the alignment between learning outcomes, assessment techniques and teaching methods.
