Kinnear, George and Jones, Ian and Sangwin, Chris and Alarfaj, Maryam and Davies, Ben and Fearn, Sam and Foster, Colin and Heck, André and Henderson, Karen and Hunt, Tim and Iannone, Paola and Kontorovich, Igor’ and Larson, Niclas and Lowe, Tim and Meyer, John Christopher and O’Shea, Ann and Rowlett, Peter and Sikurajapathi, Indunil and Wong, Thomas (2022) 'A Collaboratively-Derived Research Agenda for E-assessment in Undergraduate Mathematics.', International Journal of Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education .


This paper describes the collaborative development of an agenda for research on e-assessment in undergraduate mathematics. We built on an established approach to develop the agenda from the contributions of 22 mathematics education researchers, university teachers and learning technologists interested in this topic. The resulting set of 55 research questions are grouped into 5 broad themes: errors and feedback, student interactions with e-assessment, design and implementation choices, affordances offered by e-assessment tools, and mathematical skills. This agenda gives a framework for a programme of research aligned with practical concerns that will contribute to both theoretical and practical development.
