The need to separate the content and programming logic during the question development stage
in the implementation of computerized assessment is inevitably necessary in view of the
technology proficiency of the end-users, cost, development time and pedagogy issues.
This paper presents the use of object oriented technology in the implementation of a Multimedia
Assessment System. It will report on our applied research project currently being carried out at
the polytechnic to create re-usable question templates for easy creation of multimedia question
items. It will also discuss how contents and testing strategies could be separated and form re-usable
resources. The session will present a complete architecture of the system, inclusive of the
component of administering mastery learning tests and generating test papers of similar difficulty
level and reliability indexes. The full benefits of the system and difficulties encountered during
the implementation will be discussed.
