In the spring of 2011, AAHD at MSU launched one the first uses of LON-CAPA in a humanities field. The system was ideal for developing an assessment tool for a large introductory art history survey class. Unlike other course management systems, LON-CAPA enables the creation of elaborately customized exam problems that have extensive visual formatting options for images, and can be randomized in such a way that every student receives a unique exam. LON-CAPA has made it possible for our department to creatively and uniquely advance our core curriculum.
