Radix Learning Offers New Version of Actionable! Assessment Solution for Education Institutions
Radix Learning, a company incubated by the prestigious International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore (IIITB), has released a new version of its Actionable! Learning, Practice & Assessment solution for educational institutions.
Bangalore (I-Newswire) October 8, 2012 - Radix Learning, a company incubated by the prestigious International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore (IIITB), has released a new version of its Actionable! Learning, Practice & Assessment solution for educational institutions. The core of the solution rests on its powerful, computer-based, automatically evaluated, task-centric assessments. Both students and faculty can benefit immensely by adopting the solution. The solution currently covers several courses of Computer Science / Information Technology relevant at the undergraduate level in most universities and engineering colleges.
Learners have an ability to use the Practice Center to practice solving task-based problems that are designed to develop one’s competencies in specific courses. The learner’s solution is automatically evaluated and deep feedback is provided to enable a strong “learn by doing” environment. The learner can practice working with literally hundreds of task-based problems, categorized by topics and levels of difficulty. In addition, a Self-Assessment Center enables learners to evaluate themselves and benchmark their competencies with a peer group. Detailed reports provide actionable intelligence to the learner in developing relevant competencies.
Faculty in educational institutions can make use of the Assessment Center to conduct computer-based assessments that employ task-centric assessments as well as the ubiquitous multiple-choice questions. These assessments can be quizzes, tests, lab assignments, take-home assignments, etc. Faculty save significant amounts of time through these completely automatically evaluated assessments. Task-centric assessments enable assessment of competencies in a more credible manner than simple multiple-choice questions.
Commenting on the potential of the solution, Dr. Raja Subramanian KRV, CEO of Radix Learning said “Assessments in universities and engineering institutions ought to be outcome-based. Continuous assessments during a semester are vital, but ends up stressing the faculty in terms of time spent in evaluation and feedback. The Radix Learning Actionable! Assessment solution not only offers outcome-based assessments through its task-centric assessments but also saves a humungous amount of time that faculty would have otherwise spent on manual evaluation of student solutions. As a Professor, I have spent over 25 years manually assessing most evaluation components. I wish that such solutions were available during my time in universities. Imagine the amount of time I could have saved and channeled it for research or educational administration“!
Dr. R Chandrashekar, Professor, IIITB endorses the solution strongly by saying, “At IIITB, we need assessment systems that are scalable, sophisticated and can measure a student’s ability to perform specific tasks. Radix learning provides the next generation of assessments that leverage the methodology of task-based assessments. Using their services, we were able to conduct high-quality, automated assessments for a large number of students for quickly obtaining a qualitative measure of student competencies that truly reflect their skill levels”.
The new version of the solution has already been deployed for the benefit of faculty and students in over 30 educational institutions in India including top universities like BITS, Pilani and IIIT, Bangalore.
