CASPER: FLEXIBLE SUPPORT FOR COLLABORATIVE ASSESSMENTS AND E-PORTFOLIOS FOR WORK-BASED LEARNING

Martin Stanton, Nick Whittaker, Christopher Tubb

Abstract

This work proposes a system for flexible support of collaborative assessments that combines both physical and electronic artefacts. The project builds on current work using RFID for identifying, tracking and cataloguing physical artefacts, and also leverages Semantic Web Technologies for maintaining the relationships between physical and electronic artefacts, allowing multiple format submissions of assessment material. These relationships can be extended to any other documentation associated with the assessment (marks, feedback, moderation etc) thus permitting the use of innovative, multi-faceted assessments where less time is spent managing the submissions and more time is spent assessing and feeding back to students. The work will provide support for any collaborative assessment, but will be particularly useful in constructing, maintaining and assessing e-portfolios for work-based learning.
