    The full potential for assessment to contribute to the educational process of engineering students is typically unrealized. The main difficulty (apart from the natural inertia and reluctance to change of large institutions) is the infeasibility of implementing more effective alternatives in the resource-limited settings typical of modern educational environments. We present a system architecture t... View full abstract»
