Impact: Instructors, Students, Course Builders
Careful assessment design is important. Instructors desire flexibility in question presentation. For example, an instructor may select a one-question-at-a-time presentation so that students:
- Focus on a single question at a time without feeling overwhelmed by all the questions
- Enhanced browser performance for student access on older computers
- Enhanced experience for students in remote areas with poor network connections
- Have an improved user experience when test taking from a mobile device, where touch scrolling can lead to mistakes
