CBT development limits test development?

When planning ICT in a test one calculates advantages and disadvantages. What kind of knowledge, skills and attitudes are possible? At the moment the schools are training their pupils at showing competencies. Knowledge is not enough. A pupil must act in the right way and must know why acting like this with awareness of risks for itself and its attendants.

We are developing CBT examinations in the Netherlands integrating knowledge testing and theoretical and practical skill testing. We want to use one ICT system to test each of them separately or both of them at a time.

We evolved from paper and pencil tests to overall CBT with the software Citotester. Using a question viewer asks for an item construction bank that allows all kind of questions. At the moment we use Citotester for low stake exams. When using it for the high stake exams, as for example in high school exams, we must tackle problems like how many computers are available in the school at one time and can we make equivalent exams to be used at successive moments.

The presentation will show some examples of the use of CBT in a complex situation.
