The extensive use of technology in learning and working, is forcing its use in the assessment process. A lot of software packages exist in the market to realize automated assessment. Several of them are very comprehensive, but most of them are stand alone applications without possibilities for interoperability, adaptability according to learner characteristics and possibilities for content reuse. In this paper we describe the purposes and the process of designing an interoperable E-Testing Framework by remodelling an existing E-Testing system and introducing new structured Service Oriented Architecture, based on encapsulating existing business functions as loosely coupled, reusable, platform-independent services which collectively realize required business objectives. This common framework should support interoperable content, exchange of data and learner profiles, and give the possibility for search and retrieval of any data bank content in local and remote repositories.
