This report provides an overview of some of the emergent current practices in using technology to evaluate learning. It starts by examining terminology associated with learning evaluation in terms of literature related to the subject. Several innovative models and tools in practice are discussed in terms of their application, situations they are best suited to, advantages or disadvantages they might have and theories they are based on. Some of these are easy to apply and more practically implementable, others are indicative of advanced technologies that are likely to come into use in the future. The report concludes with a few possible scenarios regarding the context in which these technologies and methods are to be used and the real world considerations that would concern the stakeholders.
