iTest: A web application for learner-directed assessment in all levels, supporting mathematical formula and multimedia files

Resumen

This paper presents iTest, a web application for online evaluation and self-evaluation in academia, supporting mathematical formula and multimedia files. iTest provides random generation of quizzes and automatic grading. It also generates statistics about the results of each test for the instructor. iTest has been successfully used during the academic year 2006-07 in a large variety of courses at three different levels of education: university level, secondary education, and preschool education. A Pilot Project was designed and carried out with the aim of training secondary school teachers in the use of iTest.

Mis intereses de investigación se centran en las metaheurísticas aplicadas a problemas de optimización. He trabajado en diferentes problemas de optimización combinatoria aplicando algoritmos trajectoriales como GRASP o VNS. Además, estoy muy interesado en las aplicaciones de la Evolución Gramatical, específicamente en el dominio de los modelos y la predicción, como alternativa a los enfoques de aprendizaje automático.
