This paper investigates how to implement formative assessment in an e-learning environment by working with samples of marked student work. In this context learning activities and potential learning process are identified. A simple learning exercise based around examples of marked student work is presented. A survey was conducted to obtain information on the level of student participation, perceptions and attitudes. The survey results provide encouragement towards continuing the use of marked examples of student work and suggest a move towards a more interactive learning process that facilitates peer-feedback and discussion. The paper concludes with an outlook at future work on conceptual and technical levels. The development of a multi-dimensional framework for learning from marked student work in a formative way is suggested. The need for an e-learning environment that can fully support interactive learning processes around formative assessment is proposed.
