Main Article Content
This study belongs the field of learning analytics (LA) and considers data produced within digital learning environments. This study investigates the relationship between the standard psychometric properties of test questions and the information obtained from the log files produced, on a large scale, during test administration by computer. The results of this type of survey can help to make visible the intersections between formative and summative assessment and to renew the evaluation practices of a rapidly expanding sector such as digital education.
