Abstract:Because of the alarming situation of the quality in higher education some measures have to be taken. One of these measures to improve quality is external validation in higher education and thereby the implementation of progress testing of basic theoretical knowledge. These tests should be developed in a bottom-up manner. So, schools should collaborate and invest in the development of an SMS. The study is aimed at the analysis phase of educational design research in which an SMS for physiotherapy studies at Saxion Enschede will be developed. Problem and context were analyzed by a literature review, document analysis and interviews with teachers, mentors and students from physiotherapy studies at Saxion Enschede. In general, the stakeholders were positive towards the implementation of progress testing and especially about the feedback that can be delivered with this SMS. Furthermore, existing tests are analyzed with IRT to select items and estimate the item parameters. These items can be used for developing the progress tests.
