Abstract

The objective of this paper is to introduce an application of multi-sensory cognitive learning theory into the development of a multimedia tutorial for Item Response Theory. The cognitive multimedia theory suggests that the visual and auditory material should be presented simultaneously to reinforce the retention of learned materials. This computer-assisted module is carefully designed based upon the preceding theory and usability study is pending to verify the claim.
