A system for evaluation automation
that weaves a just little more magic.
The Magex project provides a library of tools and markup protocols designed to realize dynamically-rendered HTML in evaluative or survey contexts, particularly also in educational settings. By offering a standard set of HTML-complimentary directives and by also offering extensible tools that recognize those directives, content creators can concentrate more of their efforts on authoring, while worrying less about technological implementations of online evaluation. Similarly, for those desiring to create highly complex evaluative systems, the availability such a well-implemented standard and extensible API provides a quick, solid starting foundation on which to build.
HTML content containing Mastik and Magoo directives is processed by an advanced string processing library. The library allows for a single source document to be dynamically presented to evaluated individuals and their evaluators in several ways: a complete-able form, a human-evaluable document, a contextual view of evaluation, and statistical analysis of responses, in context.
The project provides a suite of extensible tools to access this library for use in various World-Wide-Web contexts.
