    Conclusions and results of 'Digital testing using images, an additional dimension' project download

    Knowledge base - Digital testing based on 3D images can be implemented safely and reliably on a large scale and enhances testing quality. That's the conclusion drawn by the project Digital image-based testing, an extra dimension. The digital progress test developed for image interpretation skills will become a fixed component of the advanced programme in radiology.

  • Final project report GigaPort3 download

    Knowledge base - Under the GigaPort3 innovation programme SURFnet has worked on innovating the network infrastructure and connecting e-infrastructure elements. SURFnet7 is among the projects that have been built under the programme. GigaPort3 had a total budget of EUR 37 million and ran until 2014.

  • Final project report SURFworks download

    Knowledge base - The SURFworks innovation project aimed to deliver a collaboration infrastructure for Dutch higher education and research institutions. Users should be able to collaborate securely and easily irrespective of the device used, the available ICT facilities or the location.

    Conclusions and results of PeerWise experiment: Student-generated items database download

    Knowledge base - In this experiment, students developed and assessed formative test questions using the PeerWise testing tool developed in New Zealand. Students and lecturers alike are enthusiastic about the process, and PeerWise is a suitable system for this method of formative testing. The system is not particularly suitable for supra-institutional collaboration.

    Conclusions and results of the ‘Secure testing in the cloud’ experiment download

    Knowledge base - The ‘Secure testing in the cloud’ experiment carried out research to see whether the Leerstation Zorg test environment is secure enough for summative testing. An important conclusion is that the supplier cannot be held solely responsible for security. Institutions themselves are responsible for correctly setting up the test workspaces.

    Conclusions and results of the 'Testing visualised' project download

    Knowledge base - The 'Testing visualised' research project has shown that the testing of radiological image interpretation using 3D image questions scores better in a number of quality-related areas than testing using 2D images. The project also sheds more light on the knowledge and skills required for radiological image interpretation.

  • Conclusion of the 'Body of Knowledge and Skills (BoKS), expanding and connecting' project download

    Knowledge base - This project has expanded the metadata of the knowledge testing database of Leerstation Zorg. The database has also been expanded with items for the summative testing of medical higher professional education nursing courses. Existing test items have been collected, edited, revised and supplemented with additional metadata.
