Solving problems/questions is one of the most indispensable and important components in the teaching and learning process. Problems/questions with adequate quality in various testing conditions are believed to enable teachers to assess individual students' capability and readiness of transfer in specific domain knowledge. Despite this, there are still many areas in need of systematic investigation to promote knowledge and skills on problems/questions-centered learning approach, including learning by problem solving and/or generation. For instance: what criteria constitute as adequate test item quality (in addition to frequently cited psychometric index like item difficulty, discrimination index); how to best assess learner's capability with appropriate quality level within constrains (e.g., an optimal number of items, time limitation, etc.); any feasible metadata heuristics and/or techniques for problems/questions selection; any promising alternative strategies for compiling a sufficient amount of number of problems/questions; any scaffolding techniques for question-generation implementation and instructional diffusion and so on.

In ICCE2006 and 2007, 2009, 2010, and 2011, we held a series of workshops where we paid special attention to "questions/problems" in technology-enhanced learning. This is the 6th workshop focusing on the same topic. This continuous workshop will provide a good and timely opportunity to present and share the results and issues about "problems/questions" in ICCE community. We cordially invite presenters and participants who are interested in further exploring the many facets and potential uses of "problems/questions" in education/learning from a technological, computational, pedagogical, psychometrics, theoretical, sociological and administrative point of views. We are also planning to propose a special issue on "technology-based problem-posing" for Research and Practice for Technology Enhanced Learning (RPTEL) based on this workshop.

All workshop participants are required to register for the main conference, but there will not be additional workshop fee.
