Using Semantic Web Technologies for the Assessment of Open Questions
The use of Semantic Web Technologies in E-learning has turned to be more and more significant in the last years. In this paper, an approach that makes use of semantic web technologies to support the assessment of open questions in e-learning courses is described. The knowledge of the course is represented by means of a domain ontology, which is used to generate semantic annotations for the assessment items and to extract knowledge from the students’ answers. This methodology has been applied in different courses and the results are also reported and discussed.
