My research:
Silvester-Draaijer2I’m an expert in the field of Computer Based Assessment for both formative and summative goals. I’m very interested in the way test items are designed and how test items can function optimally in the realms of higher education from an educational, psychological, sociological, and technological perspective.

My teaching:
