Abstract

Electronic learning is considered as an efficient mechanism in knowledge transfer. Traditional instruction, when defined as teacher-centred, hierarchically organized and individually assessed, is a pedagogical approach held in contempt by many in the educational community. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the application of instructor-centred paradigm when it is applied to formative Computer Assisted Assessment (CAA) systems and to identify those elements that exists in traditional instructionist model and can be applied in CAA. Formative assessment is used as a diagnostic tool for students and teachers to identify and improve areas of weakness (Williams, 2000). This paper describes parts of work in progress within the context of an instructor-centred model of e-learning. The main goal of this study is to investigate the issues concerned with applying an instructor-centred paradigm into an intelligent tutoring system in order to support learning and teaching objectives.
