Sept 2008 – Present
Academic researcher at Melbourne Graduate School of Education, Australia.
Main research area is education assessment technology with the focus on online applications for delivering mathematics tests and learning content.
The responsibilities included project appraisal, design evaluation, system design, solution provision, third-party contract management and ethic clearance.
Dr Gvozdenko is currently a member of the Specific Mathematics Assessment that Reveals Thinking (SMART) (smart-test) team. The smart-test system is incorporated into the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood (DEECD) intelligent on-line environment, providing school teachers with an informative diagnosis of their students' conceptual understanding of most of the topics in secondary school mathematics (for further details, see www.smartvic.com).
Additionally, Dr Gvozdenko has been involved in another project with Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) to deliver a set of online tutorials in statistical literacy. The purpose of the tutorials is to assist Victorian teachers with understanding NAPLAN results. Responsibilities included designing and programming online interactive tutorials and simulations.
Dr Eugene Gvozdenko explores the utility of response time measurements in online assessment / testing to deliver additional information about test-takers.
Analysis of response time and certainty data from a teaching perspective is in the focus of Dr Gvozdenko's research interests.
