Literature Review of E-Assessment

Literature Review of E-Assessment by Jim Ridgway, Sean McCusker and Daniel Pead

Stephen Downes take on this review is given below:

"Funny how things work in the blogosphere. This report has been out for more than a year (I hadn't seen it, though; I don't really follow assessment issues). It's quite well written, and packs some zingers (like: "In the worst case, to be able to invent and create something of value is taken to be a sure sign of feeble-mindedness; where as to opine on the work of others shows towering intellectual power"). Anyhow, this item was reviewed today in e-learning reviewa, covered in the Authentic Assessment Website, and finally, mentioned in Michelle's Online Learning Freakout Party Zone, which is where I saw it. Go figure. More literature reviews from Nesta (which needs an RSS feed). [Tags: , , , ] [Comment]"

[Stephen's lack of interest in assessment issues explains why I could find little on this topic on his blog]
