the e-Assessment Association

Mathematics SIG

The e-Assessment Association’s Special Interest Group in Mathematics was initiated in 2016, and launched in 2017, by a handful of mathematicians with expertise in e-assessment.

Mathematical e-assessment is an area with exciting and rich activity, but has been without an established focal point or platform for discussion and the promotion of good practice. The S.I.G. in Mathematics grew from a desire to build this community and naturally fits with the e-Assessment Association’s umbrella, sharing its major goals within the context of the mathematical e-assessment field.


Mission Statement


The special interest group (S.I.G.) in mathematics has the following goals:

 – To provide a forum for debate/discussion for everyone involved in e-assessment of mathematics, statistics and related disciplines;

 – To establish a point of contact for those seeking expertise and established best practice with practitioners in mathematical e-assessment;

 – To promote information and resources to the wider community of teachers, tutors, support centres, system administrators and management in this area.
