This report assesses current trends in the area of ICT for learning and assessment in view of their value for supporting the assessment of key competences. Based on an extensive review of the literature, it provides an overview of current ICT-enabled assessment practices, with a particular focus on more recent developments that support the holistic assessment of key competences for lifelong learning. The report presents and discusses a number of relevant cases of eAssessment, looks into examples of the potential of emerging technologies for eAssessment and discusses innovation and policy issues. It considers both summative and formative assessment and discusses how ICT can lever the potential of more innovative assessment formats, such as peer-assessment and portfolio assessment and how more recent technological developments, such as learning analytics, could, in the future, foster assessment for learning.
