Embedding QTI assessment in EPUB 3

  1. 1. Wilbert Kraan EmbeddingQTIassessmentinEPUB3 balancingeffectivenesswithrobustness
  2. 2. Overview • About the e-textbooks with embedded assessment experiment • Scalable processes and standards • Balancing effectiveness with robustness • Demo • Further work • Conclusions • Acknowledgements and links
  3. 3. About the e-textbooks with embedded assessment experiment • The practical difference between books and text books: formative assessment • Goal of the experiment: making electronic textbooks scalable, effective and robust
  4. 4. Scalable processes and standards • Why use interoperability standards?
  5. 5. Balancing effectiveness with robustness Most interactive Most devices Static QTI HTML inside EPUB3 • OK experience • Long lived • Works anywhere But: • No feedback • No analytics • No results (unless the user clicks a link) QTI HTML + javascript inside EPUB3 • Good experience • Reasonably long lived • No server infrastructure But: • No results or analytics • May need some work with e-reader vendors EPUB3 to online quiz tool via IMS LTI • Best experience • Secure • Quiz results return to college, analytics possible But: • Potential longevity issues • May need work with e- reader vendors • Needs an analytics ID transfer solution
  6. 6. Demo • Valid EPUB3 ebook • Uses the same valid IMS QTI 2.1 item in all contexts • QTI 2.1 item is used in static and dynamic HTML5 forms using round-trippable transforms • E-reader systems are stock, current versions
  7. 7. Differences with the current IMS EDUPUB work • The experiment doesn't stream activity data (but does report online assessment data), the IMS one does • The experiment works on a wide range of stock e- readers, the IMS requires it's own desktop-only reader • The experiment requires an out-of-band user ID solution, the IMS one can ask the user to divulge their device ID info
  8. 8. Further work • Test the solution beyond iBooks desktop, Readium desktop, Calibre and Adobe Digital Editions 2.0 • QTI 2.1 to HTML transforms are – Currently limited to multiple choice and fill-in- the-blank – Transforms need tweaking for this application • QTIWorks results reporting to 3d party LMS needs testing • QTIWorks might benefit from a better mobile user interface
  9. 9. Conclusions • EPUB3 combined with QTI 2.1 can provide formative assessment in e-textbooks that is scalable, effective and robust • Fallback mechanisms in EPUB3 enable engaging experiences in rich clients, whilst still supporting basic readers • The standards don't require change
