Online assessments are capable of providing significantly improved feedback to teaching and learning. Experience in schools is demonstrating the potential of online assessment – provided the foundations are right.
The advantages of online assessment are often described in terms of its administrative convenience, efficiency and lower costs.

For a number of years ACER has been investigating ways to enhance the educational value of online assessments.
