Assess@Learning is a European policy experimentation which aims to support the systemic uptake of Digital Formative Assessment (DFA) practices in schools.

The nine project partners co-create an online toolkit which provides guidance on DFA, including practical examples for schools, for example e-portfolios, digital diaries, classroom polling, dashboards and monitoring tools and digital games. Students, teachers, head teachers and parents from randomly selected schools in the five field trial countries (Estonia, Finland, Greece, Portugal, Spain) test the toolkit which will then be released as an Open Educational Resource in several languages for reuse and adaptation.

In parallel, qualitative research takes place with students in order to ensure that their voice forms an integral part of the project. During two one-day ‘dialogue labs', students air and discuss their views and preferences regarding learning and assessment in general and DFA in particular.

The Assess@Learning literature review establishes the state-of-the-art in international research and policy studies on digital formative assessment (DFA).
