Abstract

This work aims at presenting the eassessment framework underlying the course of Evaluation of Educational Software (EES), which integrates the Master's Course on Multimedia in Education of the University of Aveiro. Consequently, the eassessment practices of this course, involving both teachers and students, is described and analysed, taking into account the current thinking regarding eassessment and Higher Education - i.e. the orientations inherent to the Bologna Declaration. First we will discuss to what extent the eassessment is embedded in the learning process in the EES course. We will also reflect upon the constraints and potentialities of the strategies and tools used. Some of the identified problems have to do with the difficulty in assessing the students' individual performance online and the excessive (student and teacher) workload implied. Finally, suggestions for future research are put forward, e.g. to develop further studies making use of action-research methodologies, in order to conceive and develop eassessment tools to minor the limitations identified.
