e-Scape – Assessing innovation across the board

e-Scape – Assessing innovation across the board

Commissioned by what was then BECTA, in conjunction with the Technology Education Research Unit (TERU) at Goldsmiths, University of London, as well as several UK accreditation bodies we set out to develop new ways of assessing innovation, creativity and collaboration digitally.
Initially used in the controlled assessment of coursework in GCSE Design and Technology, we provided a web-based digital portfolio along with a system allowing teachers to monitor, manage and assess creativity and collaboration between students.

Teachers and accreditation bodies captured evidence of learners’ work via digital portfolios during assessment, moderation and verification and all users could access the system via their mobile device.

A series of presentations and research papers were published as a result of this innovative project, charting its stages.
