fall, we give our incoming freshmen a placement test to determine which
course they should start at. Our current placement exam needs some
work and it might be nice if we could use webwork to do this. Has
anyone done this?
In a perfect world, I would like to have students register on line
and have immediate access to our "placement course." In this perfect
world, there would be several problem sets (which would give placement
information for several different classes). The time required to take
these placment problem sets would be timed (allowing 1-2 hours or
something). Then, the scores could be reported to the student
immediately and they could refer to another webpage telling them how to
interpret those scores.
Does anyone think webwork can do all this? (I'm pretty sure it can, but is it worth it?)
