#EDENChat: #OpenVirtualMobility: content and e-assessment

The next #EDENChat will take place on 7 November 2018, at 20:00 CET and will be hosted by Francesca Amenduni (@amendoonia), from the Department of Educational Sciences at Roma Tre University, Italy. We will be discussing the “#OpenVirtualMobility: content and e-assessment ”. Please join us using the hashtag #EDENChat!

From an online multiple choice test to a peer-assessment exercise in which students are required to assess each other’s work, e-assessment techniques are becoming more and more popular in the context of Open Education. On one hand, e-assessment provides several advantages for educators such as traceability and the opportunity to work with big amount of data. On the other hand, it opens up challenges related to privacy, cheating and validity of the measurements. We will speak about how Open education practitioners and experts could face these challenges to guarantee quality standards for e-assessment.
