The purpose of the paper is to develop a MObile Handwriting TEst Revision (MOHTER) system which can be applied in an instructional design called a cognitive apprenticeship instruction model for mathematics learning in higher education. The MOHTER system offers a mobile-device APP for students who use the APP in uploading their image version of answer sheets to the cloud server of the system. Subsequently, teachers utilize the proposed system to revise answer sheets via teachers’ handwriting through web interface or web APP. Here, a significant feature of the system is to integrate four operations, revising answer sheets with handwriting, assigning scores for answer sheets, writing teachers’ comments on students’ answer sheets, and selecting answer sheets to be modelling on class, in a single window as well as to operate these four actions through web applications. The system can support a cognitive apprenticeship instruction model for mathematics learning.
