We have recently engaged with colleagues from the H2020 funded TeSLA project at the DG Connect event in Luxembourg (March 27th, 2017). The project is very much looking at e-assessment, which could provide insights into the assessment part of what we do in Beaconing. Project information is as summarised below:

The TeSLA project provides to educational institutions, an adaptive trust e-assessment system for assuring e-assessment processes in online and blended environments. It will support both continuous and final assessment to improve the trust level across students, teachers and institutions. The system will be developed taking into account quality assurance agencies in education, privacy and ethical issues and educational and technological requirements throughout Europe.

TeSLA system will follow the interoperability standards for integration into different learning environment and it will be developed to reduce the current restrictions of time and physical space in teaching and learning.

Given the innovative action of the project, the current gap in e-assessment and the growing number of institutions interested in offering online education, the project will conduct large scale pilots to evaluate and assure the reliability of the TeSLA system.
