Elements of Network-Based Assessment

Computers in the Schools Volume 23, Number 3, ISSN 0738-0569


Elements of network-based assessment systems are envisioned based on recent advances in knowledge and practice in learning theory, assessment design and delivery, and semantic web interoperability. The architecture takes advantage of the meditating role of technology as well as recent models of assessment systems. This overview of the elements outlines the advantages of technology for facilitating new forms of assessment, includes a brief discussion of a contemporary model of assessment design, and is illustrated with a case study of an application of the architecture. The case study is drawn from a research and development technology project (eTIPS) that was funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology program.
