SkillSum: basic skills screening with personalised, computer generated feedback

Sandra Williams, Ehud Baruch Reiter

Research output: Contribution to conferenceUnpublished paperpeer-review


We report on our experiences in developing and evaluating a system that provided formative assessment of basic skills and automatically generated personalised feedback reports for 16-19 year-old users. Development of the system was informed by literacy and numeracy experts and it was trialled 'in the field' with users and basicskills tutors. We experimented with two types of assessment and with feedback that evolved from long, detailed reports with graphics to more readable, shorter ones with no graphics. We discuss the evaluation of our final solution and compare it with related systems.
