Contents in Siette
The contents in Siette are divided in subjects, each subject has an associated topic tree and each topic is assigned a set of items that can be evaluated. The items may be of different types:
They are called basic items because any items that can be defined in Siette corresponds to one of these. There are three basic types of items:
- Multiple choice and simple answer items: are those items in which students must select one of a set of possible responses, which may leave the question blank, ie, without indicating any response.
- Multiple choice and multiple answer items: are similar in format to those above but in this case students can select more than one answer from the set of alternatives.
- Short answer items: are those items in which students must give a written short response given a certain stem. With the exception of the stem any other information about the response is provided to the student.
The generative items are items which are implemented using HTML embedded languages like JSP. They are templates with parameters that are instantiated when being showed.
the external items are items that are located outside the server which is the system, and therefore, its presentation is not directly controlled by Siette, but an external application is responsible of this.
Types of user
First of all is important to know that there are three types of user in Siette:
- Administrator, he will be able to install and configure. It is his duty to manage and maintain the system. In addition to his privileges, he holds those of a editor and basic users.
- Editor, he will be able to create items, define tests and activate them. In addition to his privileges, he holds those of basic users.
- Basic User, he will be able to take tests.
