Test methods for the future: innovative procedures of technology-based competency assessment
Research at the TBA Centre focuses on optimising assessment methods that are used for summative measurements on individual or population level (e.g. large scale assessments) and formative measurements for adaptive teaching and learning systems. Furthermore, the research activities include related methods of data analysis and management.
The orientation towards research is supported by the Centre for International Student Assessment (ZIB). In particular, a professorship has been established for Educational and Psychological Assessment with a focus on technology (Technology-Based Assessment and Instruction) at the Department of Teacher and Teaching Quality (TTQ). The orientation towards research in TBA will be developed by a professorship in informatics that has been complementarily established at the Information Centre for Education.
TBA mainly focuses its research on:
