The book addresses theory and practice, offering a comprehensive evaluation of many key aspects of CAA such as: * question and test design, scoring and analysis, and feedback and integration with other assessment methods * the role of CAA in feedback processes * wider use of technology to support and enhance assessment * technical, operational and support issues. The authors present a lucid,balanced analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of CAA.
