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f 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fs 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, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2013, we held a series of workshops where we paid special attention to gquestions/problemsh in technology-enhanced learning. This is the 7th 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.

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

Style of Workshop:

Mini-conference with paper presentations
