Abstract

The aim of the research was to investigate the feasibility of using digital technologies to support performance assessment. As such the study connects with two main fields of research: performance assessment, and computer-supported assessment. However, clearly these are subsumed within the general field of assessment. While it will be assumed that the basic constructs within the field of assessment are known and apply perhaps it is useful to be reminded of this through a definition of assessment from Joughin (2009) and a statement of three pillars that Barrett (2005) suggests provide the foundation for every assessment.
