Computer-based assessment software is traditionally used to assess student performance, not necessarily drive new learning. Why stop there? There is an untapped potential in how these programs are utilized to affect more than just student evaluation. Educators can work smart and not hard by using assessment software as a method of content delivery, while still taking advantage of the valuable exam delivery and data aggregation features. This presentation addresses the process of using computer-based assessment software as a way to deliver content while simultaneously assessing students and providing immediate feedback on their performance.
