WHITELOCK, D. ... et al, 2006. Identifying innovative and effective practice in e-assessment: findings from seventeen UK case studies. IN: Danson, M.

The aim of this JISC funded project was to extend the understanding of what
e-assessment meant to users and producers in the HE and FE sectors. A
case study methodology was employed to identify and report upon best and
current practice within this field of inquiry. This approach facilitated the
identification of both the enabling factors and barriers associated with eassessment.
The variety of applications of e-assessment studied and their innovation and
general effectiveness indicate the potential of e-assessment to significantly
enhance the learning environment and the outcomes for students, in a wide
range of disciplines and applications.
