Dear listmembers

I was wondering if anyone can give me any advice about
testing for content, i.e. literature, philosophy, in a
computer-enhanced classroom.

I teach Italian language and literature -- often in
very large classrooms -- and the problem with using
computers for testing is that commercial programs can
only correct handle close-ended questions, at least as
far as I know.

Has any of you experimented with open-ended questions
and computers? How do you all deal with correcting

Thank you for any advice.
