ENQA was involved as a partner in the Horizon 2020 project “An Adaptive Trust-based e-assessment System for Learning” (TeSLA) coordinated by the Open University of Catalunya (UOC). The project received funding under the ICT-2015-20 Technologies for better human learning and teaching, Innovation Action.
1 January 2016 to 31 December 2018 (36 months)
The partnership of the project involved the Open University of Catalunya as the coordinator, Université de Namur, AQU Catalunya, LPLUS GmbH, Open University of the Netherlands, Sofiiski Universitet Sveti Kliment Ohridski, The Open University of UK, Protos Sistemas de Información, Institut Mines-Telecom, Imperial College of Science – Technology and Medicine of UK, Technical University of Sofia, Anadolu University, Jyvaskylan Yliopisto, European Quality Assurance Network for Informatics Education, Instituto Nacional de Astrofísica – Óptica y Electrónica, Fondation de l’Institut de Recherche IDIAP, Watchful Software and ENQA.
The aim of the TeSLA project was to develop a system that facilitates online examination in such a way that it is guaranteed that the right student has logged in (authentication) and personally takes the test (authorship). In order to do this, new technologies in the field of authentication and authorship were combined. For example, technologies in the field of face and speech recognition, analysis of keybord touch etc. Depending on the kind of test the teacher can select a technology. The project analysed the educational, technological and ethical (privacy) issues involved in the development of such a system. Based on this analysis it drew up a workable solution consisting of a mix of techniques that can be applied in different combinations in the learning environments of the project partners.
