Meng, Zhaozong and Lu, Joan (2011) Implementing the Emerging Mobile Technologies in Facilitating Mobile Exam System. In: 2nd International Conference on Networking and Information Technology. IPCSIT 25th-26th November 2011, 17 . IACSIT Press, Hong Kong, China, pp. 80-88. ISBN 978-981-07-0680-7

Because of the wide possession of the handheld mobile devices, the application of the mobile technologies in enhancing learning activities attracts much research interest. This investigation aims at implementing students faced mobile technologies into test and exam to simplify the exam management and performance assessment. The research work focuses on the aspects of mobile device and platform oriented design, light-weight and efficient application, fast and convenient question navigation, and performance assessment, etc. In order to conduct an appropriate information service to the heterogeneous resource limited devices, the context-aware service notion is introduced to the system design. The user profile and device information are modeled and managed efficiently according to the data characteristics and their interrelationships for information adaptation. The assessment module can provide statistical results for learning performance analysis. A prototype system named Mobile Exam System (MES) is implemented on Apple iOS and Google Android OS in the current stage. Based on the work finished, some mobile oriented functions based on promising mobile technologies are suggested for next stages. The test and analysis demonstrate that the implementation of latest mobile technologies into exam is a successful attempt toward pervasive mobile learning and assessment.
