Average complexity of knowledge testing
This indicator will measure the average complexity of the test’s topic. We can use the labels ‘basic’ and ‘advanced’ which have been compiled for each document of the repository. Knowing if the topic on which a student has failed or succeeded is basic or advanced can let us to plan the next step of the student’s educational path: for example, if the student succeeds in a basic test, we could suggest him/her to approach advanced topics, or instead if he/she fails it, we could suggest revising the fundamentals.
Importance of the indicator for the students’ learning methodology:
Knowing if the topic of the test on which a student has failed or succeeded is basic or advanced is important because it can let us to suggest a specific learning path to the student (if he/she can move to advanced topics or it is better revising the basic materials).
