2021 Special Issue Advancing Beyond Multiple Choice eAssessment

This special issue curates insights from the Beyond Multiple Choice  2020 conference speakers about the trends, research, and technologies guiding the future of eAssessment—and the contexts for how it can be equitably applied to facilitate learning achievement. As the shift to eLearning accelerates, so too does the need for online assessment that can reveal and direct learning progress. This has presented both opportunities and challenges for policymakers, curriculum and assessment designers, and educators.

eLearn Magazine would like to acknowledge Brian Moon the chief technology officer for Perigean Technologies, president of Sero! Learning Assessments, and cofounder of BMC. Moon served as the Special Issue Editor.
