TEFA Workshop


Workshop on Technology-Enhanced Formative Assessment (TEFA) 2013

Dates: 17 - 18 September 2013
Place: Paphos, Cyprus.

This workshop was initiated by the special interest group on Technology Enhanced Assessment and Feedback (SIG TEA) of the European Association of Technology-Enhanced Learning (EA-TEL: http://ea-tel.eu) and two other experts from the assessment field.

The Workshop was held in conjunction with the 8th European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning 2013.


The goal of the workshop is to develop the notion of technology-enhanced formative assessment (TEFA) as a component for extending existing or new TEL approaches, further combining expertise from pedagogy, educational measurement, cognitive science, and information technology. A trend from dedicated to integrated and from sporadic to continuous formative assessment is envisioned. Challenging research questions will be addressed such as: How are established forms of formative assessment changing with the inclusion of technology and what new forms of formative assessment become possible? How is this reflected in new pedagogical approaches? How can today VLE support the provision of elaborated feedback?
