You are invited to a pre-conference workshop before the CAA 2012 Conference http://caaconference.co.uk/ at the De Vere Grand Harbour Hotel, Southampton on Monday 9th July 2012, 10:00 – 16:00. This is the announcement that we are circulating:
We have recently been funded by JISC to disseminate the results of a number of recent projects on standards-based Assessment through the QTI-PET project, and as part of this activity we are holding a Workshop on the day before the CAA 2012 conference (http://caaconference.co.uk/ ), at the same venue.
The workshop will include introductions to some new tools being developed under the JISC funded projects QTIDI and Uniqurate:
- A user-friendly editor called Uniqurate, which produces questions conforming to the Question and Test Interoperability specification, QTIv2.1,
- A way of connecting popular VLEs to assessment delivery applications which display QTIv2.1 questions and tests – this connector itself conforms to the Learning Tools Interoperability specification, LTI,
- A simple renderer, which can deliver basic QTIv2.1 questions and tests,
- An updated version of our comprehensive renderer, which can deliver QTIv2.1 questions and tests and also has the capability to handle mathematical expressions.
There will be an opportunity to discuss participants’ assessment needs and to look at the ways these might be addressed using the applications we have available and potential developments which could be part of future projects.
We shall also demonstrate the features of the QTI Support site, created under the QTI-IPS project to help users to get started with QTI. This collection of tools, content and documentation is still growing, and we expect to add more features, prompted by the needs of our partners in the projects who are adopting the tools in their teaching.
Participants in the workshop are most welcome to join us as informal partners in QTI-PET.
Places are limited, so please register to attend the workshop by emailing Sue Milne firstname.lastname@example.org with your details as soon as possible.
