The E-scape project was an electronic assessment system that was based on students designing and prototyping new products by working entirely digitally. The expectation was that this form of assessment would encourage new forms of thinking in the students, enrich the designing process and make the assessment process more manageable.
The project was developed in three parts:
*Phase one - proving that it was possible to have a successful e-assessment structure
*Phase two - building a prototype for the assessment structure
*Phase three - looking at whether this form of assessment could be used in other subjects areas within the school curriculum.
