Abstract: This paper seeks to examine the potential for wikis in assessing learner achievement. There is a widespread recognition that groupwork is a beneficial method of learning, and that assessment is a key driver in determining the learning methods that are employed (e.g. Scouler, 1998; Black and William, 1998). Examining the processes of assessing groupwork and the potential that new technology can bring to this is essential to expanding its use. One new technology, which can be used to assess groupwork, is a wiki – an editable webpage which can track the comments made, plus any discussion which goes on behind the scenes, and log the time/date of contributions.
