Constructed Response

— Constructed Response

Assessments powered by Technology-Enhanced Items (TEIs).

Interactive and challenging tasks foster deeper engagement, elevate cognitive processing, and enhance the evaluation of student understanding. Traditional assessments often rely on ‘selected’ responses, such as multiple-choice questions, which may not accurately measure a student’s knowledge compared to ‘constructed’ responses, where students complete an interactive task. These Constructed Response items, also known as Technology Enhanced Items (TEIs), offer a more accurate gauge of student understanding, foster more engaging learning experiences, and minimize the impact of guessing.

edaptAI provides a comprehensive and continually growing collection of over 60 prebuilt TEI formats and interactive elements, encouraging designers to favor constructed responses over selected responses in their course content.

Our research into Constructed Response, inspired by ‘Construction versus Choice in Cognitive Measurement’ by Bennett, R. E. (1993), is rooted in the science of learning.                     

Prevent Generative-AI assisted cheating
