Tool for designing and sequencing learning activities, including formative assessment
Summary of the ASSIS (Assessment and Simple Sequencing Integrating Services) project

Please describe the tool you are building

Assis will provide tools for a teacher to browse, search, preview and select assessment objects from question banks which can then be incorporated into sequences of content. A player will be produced for learners that will present material from content packages and integrate with Assis external services for presenting assessment objects and the processing of sequencing rules

What problem do you see the development of this tool helping to address?

The development of new and effective learning experiences for lifelong and traditional learners in a distributed learning environment will require the extensive use of formative, self, and other assessment tools and objects. It should also be possible to integrate these tools and objects into intelligent sequences of content. This integration will allow direct feedback from the assessment to be incorporated into the learning process, giving learners the opportunity to test their knowledge and understanding in an appropriate space and at an appropriate time.

Who do you see the being the primary user(s) of this tool?

Teachers who wish to create innovative, adaptive learning experiences using formative assessment and sequencing and their students.

How do you see your tool being used?

see above

To use your tool, what infrastructure etc (if any) will be needed? (ie - could it be used stand-alone? Would it need a VLE/other system to be in place?)

The tools have been designed to run as stand-alone software but do require an Internet connection to enable the tools to communicate with external services.
