Abstract

This chapter explores how we can harness technology to foster self-regulated learning in assessment practices. Traditionally innovation in assessment lags behind that in other areas of teaching and learning, however, it is important to make sure that assessment methods and practices are aligned with learning objectives. For assessment to be a beneficial learning experience for students it is important that they are afforded more autonomy and agency over what, when and how they are assessed. This chapter reflects on the ‘problem’ that assessment and feedback presents and on what the research is showing academics need to concentrate. Secondly, it considers how eAssessment tools can provide a way forward to achieving these objectives and helping students to develop more self-regulated learning strategies. Finally the authors will explore how the use of these tools can allow students greater autonomy over the whole assessment process, and the essential role that technology may play in achieving this.
