|Hi Webwok users,
I am working with a group of people trying to put together a test bank
of questions adapted from the Consortiuum Calculus texts by
Hughes-Hallet et al. in webwork. In order to complete this project, we
need the help of as many people as possible who may be interested in
using such a question bank.
To avoid redundencies, our first task is to track down all questions
which may have already been adapted into Webwork. The second task is to
adapt a sample of the remaining questions from the text into Webwork.
In order to do this, we shall be relying upon the contributions of
those who already use Webwork. Those who contribute questions they have
already adapted or those who are interested in adaptig new questions
would have full access to the question bank.
The task is clearly a rather large task, but as a Webwork user and a
user of the Consortium texts myself, I think it would be extremely
useful. If you have adapted questions into Webwork or would be
interested in adapting questions, we would certainly appreciate your
Of course, one disadvantage of a large group working on such a project
is that it could lead to many inconsistencies in notation, accuracy of
answers etc. FOr this reason, we would have some central data base
where all questions would be sent, and then each question could be
checked by members of the McWG before being stored in the question bank.
Feel free to contact Douglas Quinney, firstname.lastname@example.org, or me, Aaron Wootton, email@example.com, if you have any questions about this project or if you would like to contribute.
