Digital media and information systems present the opportunity to capture, store and manage multiple forms of evidence (visual/aural/kinaesthetic) about artistic product and processes that are compatible with the more personal, qualitative meanings with which artistic practice is concerned. This suggests new possibilities for better assessment of learning that combines evidence of learning in these modes, with existing textual and numerical measures. EPortfolio’s that provide digital means of capture, storage and reviewing of assessment data are being tested in many locations throughout the world (see for example the eportfolio consortium: http://eportconsortium.org/DesktopDefault.aspx). While the interest in the use of this technology for assessment is growing in proportion to the availability of software and hardware and enthusiasm of the users there is an urgent need to examine the implications at a theoretical level alongside technical and practical use.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
