Advances in Online Assessment
When you think of online assessment do you think of multiple-choice
questions that simply test if students can memorise facts and repeat
them? The JeLSIM team believe that online assessment can be more than
that and can test more complex skills and accurately measure real
potential. We don't see learning and assessment as two distinct
processes and are working towards blurring the boundary and assessing
students in the same environment in which they learn.
JeLSIM have been working with the PASS-IT team to
combine their simulations with online assessment technology and now we
are able to quickly and efficiently construct online assessments
containing simulations. We haven't just added simulations into the
assessment system we have fully integrated them:

What type of assessment is supported?
The student can submit multiple answers containing any number of
parameters from the simulation - this allows assessment of complex
multi-staged activity and a more accurate assessment of overall student
||In this question students are asked to determine
which of the components in the circuit are faulty. They have a notepad
to record their deductions. The assessment engine not only records
whether they have solved the problem correctly but also how efficiently
they solved the problem. Click the image to see the question and
The process is cost effective as we re-use existing simulations
and rapid production templates. Questions can also be re-used by
We can work with you to create a range of innovative simulation
questions that measure the performance parameters of trainees or
students that you want to
measure. We will host the tests and provide teachers and students with
access reports and data through the reporting database.
