Effective assessment in a digital age

Technology-enhanced assessment

Assessment lies at the heart of the learning experience: how learners are assessed shapes their understanding of the curriculum and determines their ability to progress. At the same time, assessment and feedback form a significant part of practitioners' workloads and, with increased numbers, reduced budgets and higher learner expectations, continue to be a matter of concern for many institutions delivering higher education.

JISC has been working in support of technology-enhanced assessment for over a decade, looking at issues to do with pedagogy and institutional context for the appropriate use of a wide range of technology to support the assessment and feedback process, as well as technologies and interoperability standards for the delivery of on-screen tests.
