|The MathAssess project aims to build on the
JISC has made in
an open standard in the e-assessment arena and supported
the development of open source tool kits such as
Minibix . By enhancing these toolkits and integrating
with Maxima, a computer algebra system, MathAssess will
shown how the specific needs of mathematics can be
catered for using open content interoperability
standards and open source software.
MathAssess acknowledged long-established user needs in mathematics e-assessment – diagnostic, formative and summative – providing for the delivery of truly randomised questions and tests, with hints, solutions and feedback being available to students at all appropriate stages. The project will bring together the mathematics community’s decades of experience creating and using on-line resources with a commitment to open standards with the aim of overcoming long-standing problems with lock-in and obsolescence.
