In this work, we propose a model of students’ examination data which can contain timestamp and handwriting information using a tablet computer. Stored data is consumed by students’ achievement recording software so that both teachers and students can trace their records at any time. The handwriting data in this work can be expressed as XML description so that other applications can use the data easily. The scope of this work is limited to store students’ examination information so that it is recommended to be combined with students’ profile or other valuable data. Inside the data, this work treats the examination information, question information, students’ response time of each question, and moreover, students’ behavioral factors including page navigation, removal and writing activities. With the students’ behavioral data, a visualization software can give user to suppose the student’s activity easily and vividly. In this work, we describes an example of visualization software which allows user to review recorded secondary students’ mathematics examination. Not only score-based assessment, our work may contribute to improve student’s assessment and feedback with various educational insights.
