QuesTInSitu
Authoring tool and mobile app designed and built to support assessment in situ activities based on tests

 

QuesTInSitu is an authoring tool and mobile app designed and built to support assessment in situ activities based on tests. Users can create geolocated questions and tests (routes) in a webmap (from Google Maps). The questions follow the educational technology standard for assessment IMS Question & Test Interoperability (QTI). QuesTInSitu also is a mobile app with a player of questions where users can answer the geolocated questions and they are automatically corrected. Using the application an author can create two types of assessment in situ activities: assessment in real & virtual situ. The mobile version allows students to follow the assessment in real situactivities, answering the questions, receiving feedback and score insitu and personalizing the questions with their own pictures and comments.
