Abstract: This paper explores how e-assessment and its formative attributes can be embedded/designed in OERs (Open Educational Resources). The formative aspect of e-assessment tools and resources is rather under-developed and under-researched in the context of higher education. A literature review was carried out to identify developments in the area of e-assessment and OERs. The second objective was to investigate what types of OERs had been developed in different disciplines. A significant number of OERs were evaluated to explore how e-assessment is conceptualised and realised in the context of OERs. Overall, it seems that OER e-assessment is not substantially different from those found or offered in proprietary settings, but open resources in the area are important in destabilizing didactic nature of transmissive OERs that are mainly focused on content.
