Computer-Based Assessment (CBA) to Improve Deep Learning of Mathematics in Engineering

This report, published by LSIS, describes an action research project carried out by Newcastle College. The main aim of the research was to identify a new approach to teaching which would help engineering students in the learning of calculus. The cohort of students had no previous experience of calculus and the objective was to examine if improvements could be made in assessed results when compared to the results from previous years. The tool selected for use on this project was Mathletics developed by Martin Greenhow at Brunel University.
