Abstract

The focus of this paper concerns the e-assessment strategy for the valuation and validation of a particular abstract entity: the Virtual Scientific Experiment (VSE) model. This model is included in a particular didactic method, the VSE method (ELeGI D18), which allows the realisation of an inductive-experiential didactic approach. The choice of a particular method with respect to another method depends both on the evaluation of the tutor in the context and the information linked to the acquisition of knowledge, competences and skills. The term ‘inductive’ comes from the Latin word epagoge and means the process that moves from specific instances up to a generalisation (Rescher, 1980). The induction refers to the different aspects of e-learning: from a more superficial learning (know-how) to a learning contextualised in time and space (know when and know where), where the mental models are made. It happens when the students take part in a specific activity, make intuitions and conduct analyses. More researches in this line are being carried out to find out how cognitive capability can be supported using the adaptive techniques of assessment to improve the learning process.
