Exams of Tomorrow: Use of Computers in Dutch national science exams Gerard BoeijenPeter Uylings Cito groupAMSTEL Institute ArnhemAmsterdam
ICT exams : in every profile, every sector and every stream 2002 - 2006
ICT Physics Exams : For all schools until 2006 and..Compulsory from 2007?! 2002 - 2006
Overview Choice central exams Experimental exams Added value? School organization
Education as a function of time 1960 2007

Importance of keeping Central Exams
Importance of keeping Central Exams by type of Education
ICT and Multimedia in Exams Use of standard software, video & sound, simulations, animations, web-based information Presentation (data, information, models, graphs, video) on screen Questions and Answers on paper. Correction by teacher on paper or by computer
To give an impression…..
The Central Examination Board, Policy ICT in every profile and every sector project 2002 -2006 parallel to exams on paper schools choose themselves Obligatory in practical exams with vocational subjects Added value!
3 kinds of ict-applications 1. Offer information(i) 2. Use of standard software (s) 3. Exams on screen(b) open questions and practical exams open questions and practical exams Computer-processable questions
Offer Information CKV2 havo/vwo Dance and Drama th/mixed Biology havo, vwo, th/mixed practical exams kb and bb
Exams on Screen French and German bb Biology bb Metal- and conveyance engineering bb Business and Sales bb English havo
ICT Exam subjects 2003-2006 Vwo Physics (s) biology (i,s) Math A 12 (s) Math A1 (s) Havo Physics (s) Biology (i,s) Geography (i,s) Economy 1 (i,s)
Scope of application Science Questions on video fragments (bi) Data Video (Coach 5, Coach 6) Modeling (Coach and Excel) Experiments and data processing (animations, Flash, Java-applets etc.) Simulations
Use standard software Physics havo, vwo, th/gem Geography havo, vwo, th/gem Biology havo, vwo, th/gem Dutch havo, vwo, th/gem Central integrated final test kb Central practical exam bb
Examples in Physics…Exam 2004 Sahara and on paper: Toaster and on paper: Six Flags and on paper:
School Organization Adapting network (cheating, copying..) Setup examination room with PC’s System requirements (install and test CD-rom) Data transport online More successive sessions: training! Software available at home
Added Value? More visualization possible Multi-media, animations, measuring possibilities Data-processing Testing larger range of skills: ICT, experimentation. Try-out options, ‘self’-corrective: → questions more open, adressing problem-solving capacity! Realistic, less ‘artificial step-by step’ problems
