Abstract

As knowledge in the area of self-regulated learning has progressively expanded, there is a perceived need for new methods and assessment instruments that are in line with the construct and with the subject. Computer-assisted assessment has been proposed as an excellent means for responding to these demands for new types of measurement. Nonetheless, new instruments and assessment processes must be submitted to the same ethical standards required elsewhere, whether in aspects relating to design or to usage. Development of the SEAI program was guided by a psychological model as well as a model for designing computer-aided assessment. This chapter presents the SEAI program design, and explains how both its design and use seek to meet ethical standards related to computer-aided assessment.
