Esther Huertas, Roger Roca, Jana Moehren, Paula Ranne, Anaïs Gourdin


The ever-changing landscape of higher education and the rapid technology advancement are leading to new ways of teaching and assessing. Accordingly, quality assurance (QA) must adapt to these changes to give confidence in these new realities. In the scope of the TeSLA project, QA processes aim to assure and guarantee the quality of an e-assessment system using authentication and authorship instruments.

The achievement of this aim will contribute to the enhancement of educational quality in the different forms of e-learning (always in compliance with the ESG). Consequently, the proven achievement of desired learning outcomes and competencies will also increase the trust and reliability in these forms of education provision. In order to identify the essential elements for a proper evaluation, this paper first presents the overall structure and aims of TeSLA project after which it discusses in more detail the QA methodology applied in the evaluation of the TeSLA system.
