Abstract

E-learning has advanced considerably in the last decades allowing the interoperability of different systems and different kinds of adaptation to the student's profile or the learning objectives. But, some of its aspects, such as E-testing are still in an early stage. As a consequence, most of the actual E-learning platforms offer only basic E-testing functionalities. In addition, most of those platforms present the tests in a traditional format despite their known limitations and precision problems. However, by making efficient use of well known techniques in artificial intelligence, existing psychometric theories and standards in E-learning, it could be possible to integrate adaptive and more informative E-testing functionalities in the actual E-learning platforms. In this paper, we will present some of the principles, the architectural elements and the algorithms used in an exploratory integration of adaptive testing functionalities within the Moodle platform.
