Summary: First year mathematics undergraduates were asked about their experiences of using computer-aided assessment (CAA) in their mathematics modules. It forms a small component of their summative scores in some modules. The aims of these focus groups were to establish how students use CAA systems and how they respond to its feedback. This paper discusses why these should be of interest, how students responded, and the implications on future work.
