This paper presents work in progress concerning the definition of quality criteria for open source computer based assessment, namely platforms for the assessment of skills. The research approach undertaken so far is based on literature reviews and expert interviews which contributed to identify a number of software applications, platforms and tools being currently reviewed according to a pre-defined matrix of descriptive and normative criteria. The results of the evaluation activities will feed the setting-up of a protocol for quality assurance of e-assessment platforms in skills assessment contexts.
