This paper describes the collaborative development of an agenda for research on e-assessment in university mathematics. We adapted an established approach to develop the agenda from the contributions of 22 mathematics education researchers, university teachers and learning technologists interested in this topic. The resulting set of 55 questions are grouped into 5 broad themes: errors and feedback, students, design and implementation, affordances, and mathematical skills. This agenda gives the framework for a programme of research aligned with practical concerns, that will contribute to both theoretical and practical development.
