M-Learning (e-Learning through mobile device) is gaining its importance worldwide among the Learning Community owing to the ubiquitous and powerful computing nature of the Mobile Devices.In an M-Learning environment, Student Assessment and Evaluation of their knowledge acquisition is a vital factor. Adaptive Testing helps the instructor to obtain an accurate estimation of the student’s levelof knowledge and learning ability. The significant advantage of Adaptive Tests is that each student receives different questions and the number of questions also varies depending on their performancelevel. The tests are designed according to the instructor’s specification for the selection of question, the marks awarded for each question and the evaluation technique. The Adaptive Tests have to include various question and answer formats like drop down list, fill-in the blanks, Yes/No and multiple choice question etc. and the test content should support multimedia objects. The Android Platform for 3rd Generation Mobile Devices provides a rich set of User Interfaces (UI), gestures and 2-D and 3-D graphic capabilities. The goal of this paper is to design and evaluate the Mobile Adaptive Test (MAT) in an MLearning environment for Android Based Mobile Devices.
