Computer-Based Assessment of Chinese Students’ Component Skills of Problem Solving: A Pilot Study

Hao Wu and Gyöngyvér Molnár
Abstract—The objectives of the study is to explore the applicability of online assessment for detecting the component skills of problem solving and defining factors which impact the developmental level of student’s problem solving skills in China. The sample of the pilot study was drawn from six grade students (age 11-13, N=50). The instruments of the study were conducted by four tests measuring problem solving, inductive reasoning, working memory and creativity, and a questionnaire, which focused on participants’ demographic data, learning strategies, and ICT familiarity. The results and findings support the views that computer-based tests are applicable to measure students thinking skills and the component skills of problem solving in China at the age of 11-13, and proved the theoretical statement which is one’s problem solving achievement is influenced by some specific thinking skills and background factors.

Index Terms—Computer-based assessment, problem solving skills, quantitative methods, thinking skills.
