e-Assessment is a critical issue for post-16, higher education and the wider education community and is recognised within the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills as fundamental to its success and as an important factor in delivering the emerging 14–19 programmes of learning. JISC recognised the importance of e-assessment for the UK education and research community as long ago as the late 1990’s as part of the groundbreaking work on Managed Learning Environments and work on standards. As software suppliers and test developers become increasingly involved in producing e-assessment tools and content, so JISC is bringing the issues associated with this increasingly complex area to the attention of the Further and Higher Education communities that it serves.
