Research topics

The NEPS-TBT work package, integrated into the Centre for Technology Based Assessment (TBA) at DIPF, addresses amongst others the following psychometric/diagnostic research topics:

At the interdisciplinary Centre for Technology Based Assessment (TBA), research topics from the fields of computer science and information science are moreover focused: 

  • Measurement of reaction times and analysis of time accuracy of assessment systems (e.g. by means of a response time keyboard developed by TBA)
  • Mobile assessment and online assessment on heterogeneous hardware
  • Long-term storage of computer-based test instruments (particularly regarding task generation  with CBA ItemBuilder)
  • Test safety and test delivery on available hardware for computer-based testing in institutional contexts (school infrastructure)
    workflow support for implementing computer-based tasks
  • Dissemination of log and process data
