Wolfram Technology Conference 2015
Conference location

Champaign, Illinois USA

In this hands-on presentation we show how the Wolfram Language can be used to create computer based exams for higher education, and how they are distributed to students using the Wolfram Cloud. By means of individualization, randomization, and automated grading our assessment solution has various advantages compared to traditional paper and pencil exams: Not only that testing becomes much more efficient, the quality, accuracy, and fairness of exams is improved as well. Despite of sharing our experience with a first use case we want to discuss the potential of using Wolfram Technologies for assessment processes at universities.
