Do students studying Java perform better in short answer questions or computational questions? - A Case Study

Research output: Contribution to ConferencePoster

Abstract

There are numerous ways to assess students in a written Java test at University level. In this paper we try to determine whether students perform better in
short answer type questions which test lower level cognitive skills or computational type questions which test higher level cognitive skills. Our case study is
a Time Constrained Assessment for a level 5 module at Northampton University.
