Testing and Assessing Mathematical Skills by a Script Based System

Abstract

Especially in the mathematical education there seems to be a need for strict drill and practice exercises. Such training cannot be met by traditional means. Therefore, a computer program is needed which generates parametrisable questions/problems which the students have to answer/solve and which at the same time assesses the answers/solutions of the students. We designed such a system as an interface between the learning platform ILIAS and MATLAB/Maple as the symbolic mathematics engine. We demonstrate how by scripting a wide variety of parametrisable problems can be generated and how MATLAB/Maple can be used to checks the correctness of the solutions of the students. Examples illustrate the potential and limitations of this approach.
