Assessment and Evaluation in Higher Education English 2009 This article reports on the e-Framework Reference Model for Assessment (FREMA) project that aimed at creating a reference model for the assessment domain: a guide to what resources (standards, projects, people, organisations, software, services and use cases) exist for the domain, aimed at helping strategists understand the state of elearning assessment, and helping developers to place their work in context and thus the community to build coherent systems. This article describes the rationale and method of developing the FREMA model and how it may be used. We delivered FREMA via a heavily interlinked website. Because the resulting network of resources was so complex, we required a method of providing users with a structured navigational method that helped them explore and identify resources useful to them. This led us to look at how overviews of e-learning domains have been handled previously, and to work towards our own concept maps that ploted the topology of the domain. FREMA represents an evolving view of the domain and therefore we developed the website into a Semantic Wiki, thereby allowing the assessment community to record their own projects and services and thus to grow the reference model over time. 0 0
A study of ontology convergence in a Semantic Wiki Emergent ontologies

Semantic wiki
WikiSym 2008 - The 4th International Symposium on Wikis, Proceedings English 2008 Semantic Wikis propose a combination of both easy collaboration and semantic expressivity; characteristics of the WikiWikiWeb and the Semantic Web respectively. In this paper we look to define and analyse the Semantic Wiki method, in order to explore the effect of different Semantic Wiki characteristics on the quality of the semantic networks authored within them. We look at a number of different Semantic Wiki implementations, including their semantic expressivity and usability. We focus on support for ontology creation, and perform an evaluation on the effect of type suggestion tools on ontology convergence within a seeded and unseeded Wiki (using Semantic MediaWiki and our own MOCA extension). We find that seeding a Wiki with typed pages and links has a strong effect on the quality of the emerging structure and that convergence tools have the potential to replicate that effect with an unseeded Wiki, but that they have limited impact on the reuse of elements from the evolving ontology. 0 0
