Electronic assessment can provide the opportunity to assist students to become more reflective learners. This is largely due to the immediacy of feedback that can be offered. This paper examines a number of recent developments, which exhibit innovation in electronic assessment together with specific reference to a suite of tools developed at the UK’s Open University to support this process. It also raises the issue of what assessment practices should be automated and recommends the introduction of more formative computer assisted assessment in higher education.
