This session will focus on three ground-breaking projects that utilise innovative e-assessment technologies to support personalised learning, effective feedback and collaborative professional development of staff assessment skills. ‘Personalised Formative Literacy and Numeracy Testing in Wales’ - how a new national assessment system for Wales, based on Computer Adaptive Testing with strong alignment to the National Literacy & Numeracy Framework is providing formative, personalised assessments on a national scale. ‘Collaborative assessment of writing skills in Oxfordshire’ - how a group of previously un-linked primary schools reduced teacher workload and improved moderation of writing skills assessment using adaptive comparative judgement to support national writing skills assessment. ‘Improving Students’ Assessment Feedback Literacy’ - how the University of Surrey has improved student feedback literacy and engagement using student-led technology. The session is chaired by the eAssessment Association
