Teaching PASCAL with WWW based MCQ exercises

Abstract : This paper presents an overview of the design, first implementation and evaluation of hypertext based Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) Pascal courseware. The courseware is implemented using the WebDidact system, which is based on the World Wide Web. The MCQs are written in a simple language that allows the author to use HTML markup tags within the question structures. Using WWW places some constraints on the hypertext system and gives rise to some navigational difficulties. From the experience developing and using the courseware, we conclude that it would be better to use a new SGML DTD to define the MCQ authoring language. The navigational problems may be partially overcome by exploiting mechanisms provided by the latest technological developments in the WWW, notably Java and Javascript.
