Brief Bio
Gregor Damnik is currently working as the chair representative of the Professorship of Didactics of Computer Science at the TU Dresden, Germany. He received his PhD in Psychology in the topic of learning with digital media at the TU Dresden. He is interested in research on the (automatic) generation of learning tasks and test items, digital services for learning, learning level diagnostics, as well as the overall effects of learning with digital media.


Due to the digitalization of a huge amount of learning processes, the interest for digital assessment methods has been growing in recent years. However, creating test items by hand is a time- and resource consuming procedure.
In the special session, we will discuss Automatic Item Generation (AIG), which is a process that significantly differs from the traditional way of item creation. In AIG, experts do not write single items; rather they create a highly structured representation of the subject area, which is called cognitive model. Afterwards, experts create an item model that can be used as a pattern for an item pool. Lastly, software is used to create a bunch of items by combining the cognitive and the item model.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Assessment
  • Metrics and Performance Measurement
  • Authoring Tools, Editors, and eLearning Platforms
  • Course Design and eLearning Curriculae
  • Feedback and Learning Support
  • AI Support for Item Creation
