In this chapter we carry out analysis of the term “assessment,” applied over all the elements which constitute the environment of formation (evaluation), and also particularizing in the assessment of the learning process, developed in the frame of what we call e-learning. The perspective guiding text is of a methodological and pedagogical nature. We try to plan the assessment process in online formation environments dealing in depth with the different elements which constitute it: objectives and functions of assessment, assessment criteria and indicators, people involved and assessment agents, software instruments and tools for the collection of data, and analysis of the information and reports. We raise a discussion about institutional strategies for the incorporation of this e-assessment methodology in higher educational institutions and come to the final conclusions about the validity and appropriateness of the e-learning assessment processes.
