Everything you were afraid to ask …
… about computer-aided assessment (CAA) is probably in this glossary ( 540 KB) of e-assessment terms: everything from "Acceptance Criteria" and "Applet" to "XML Localisation Interchange File Format (XLIFF)" and "Zip". If you spot a gap (e.g. RFM) , you are invited to write and tell them.
They tell us who they are:
JISC, in association with QCA and BECTA (fear not, the glossary defines these acronyms) have contracted 3Square Solutions to lead a team comprising AlphaPlus Consultancy and Chris Ricketts of The University of Plymouth to develop a glossary of e-assessment terms for use by the UK education community.
I wonder how much it cost taxpayers to lighten our darkness — even after a good night's sleep, you don't always welcome having the blinds opened. Significantly, the glossary omits the phrase "google it".
