Scoring test questions

Possibilities for scoring questions

The first decision to make is whether the test question (or item) can be scored automatically, or whether it needs to be manually scored. Not all test questions in a specific test need to be scored in the same way; even parts of the same test question (if there are two interactions in the same item, for example) can be marked in different ways, or use different scoring methods.

First, we'll focus on what the options are for scoring test questions automatically, and then have a brief look at the manual scoring platform, which is available as an add-on to TAO.
