CABLE 1.0

CABLE

CABLE (Computer Algebra Based Learning and Evaluation) is an online mathematical assessment tool for use with an open source computer algebra system.

Computer algebra systems (CAS) are well-established research tools for performing symbolic manipulation of mathematical expressions, such as algebra and calculus. CABLE is designed to be a cost-effective, online infrastructure for writing, testing and databasing lightweight and flexible mathematical learning objects.

Functions of CABLE:
- Instantiation and delivery of objects with randomised parameters.
- Evaluation and feedback of answers to questions contained in these objects. Typically each object has one question associated with it.
- Generation of worked solutions from templates with reference to the instantiated parameters.
- Simple analysis of answers from cohorts of students.
- Design has preferred formative learning rather than assessment.
