EXTENDING DIPSEIL PERFORMANCE SUPPORT SYSTEM BY INTEGRATING QUIZ MODULE FOR BETTER LEARNING RESULTS

D. Stoyanova, N. Mileva, M. Milev

University of Plovdiv "Paisii Hilendarski" (BULGARIA)
Plovdiv University (BULGARIA) has more than ten years of experience in the implementation of performance-centered approach in education by utilizing the Distributed Internet-based Performance Support Environment for Individualized Learning (DIPSEIL). Each course in DIPSEIL contains a number of tasks, which require higher-level thinking to complete successfully. The student assessment is based on the results from the learning tasks performances and a final test exam. Our experience from the final exam results reveals that most of students fail to answer questions that require factual and procedural knowledge.

That is the reason why the new, fourth version of DIPSEIL was extended with a Quiz generation system. The system is based on the use of the functional programming language Elixir and consists of the following modules:
1. Quiz generation module that supports different types of questions (dichotomous, multiple choice, short answer)
2. Quiz statistics module that provides calculation of: difficulty index, discrimination index, reliability and validity of tests, etc.

The pilot experiment of DIPSEIL Quiz generation system was conducted during the first semester of the academic year 2018-2019. The experiment involved 40 fourth year students who had already had an experience with DIPSEIL. Students' and teachers' questionnaires were used for qualitative data collection. Results doubtlessly show that DIPSEIL Quiz generation system enhances student assessment and can improve learning outcomes.
