Abstract

Although computer-aided assessment has been developed since late 1980’s, advantages and disadvantages of multiple-choice tests (MCTs), as opposed to traditional academic techniques (such as essays), are still greatly debated. This paper overviews current practice of application of MCTs in Computing and generally outlines their applicability in teaching Software Engineering, as a subject area in HE.
