Items for computer-based tests and surveys can be developed with different authoring tools and editors (for example the ) and technologies. For the use in actual assessments these elements have to be integrated. A simple, technology independent administration of browser-based items and an integrated test execution for online or offline assessments can be achieved with the help of TBA-Tools.
What is TBA-Tools?
How does TBA-Tools work?
- Tool and technology cross integration of browser based items (for example HTML, Silverlight, Flash, JAVAFX etc. can be used together in one test)
- Compatible to common web browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera,…)
- Intuitive handling and simple adaptability, for example, easily configurable testing procedures (for example, for the implementation of test booklet rotation, specific item orders, repetition of skipped items, selective item-review…)
- Flexible order of single components (for example, status information for the remaining tasks)
- Support of workflows for automatic generated items or questions
- Use of open standards as for example, platform independent configuration with the help of XML-specifications
- Permanent crash protection and easily implementable crash recovery, that means, automatic restore of interrupted or accidentally closed tests and easy implementation of editing conditions within items
- Automatic handling of scores (evaluations) per item during the test administration and continuous storage of detailed log-data
