ABSTRACT: This article presents an introduction to elements of a network-based assessment system based in recent advances in knowledge and practice in learning theory, assessment design and delivery, and semantic web interoperability. The envisioned architecture takes advantage of the meditating role of technology, the major elements in emerging designs for assessment systems, and how network-based processes can take advantage of these perspectives.
