Experimental Testing Program In Elementary Chemistry: A Preliminary Report, Billie G. Broach, Howard L. Hodges

Journal of the Arkansas Academy of Science

An experimental testing program is described which utilizes questions that are partly computer composed, in addition to a section composed by the instructor, and a retesting option to the student. Results from a trial of the program for one term indicate that (1) course grades were improved, (2) the student withdrawal failure rate was unaffected, and (3) the employed students took greater advantage of the retest than did the unemployed students.
