Abstract: The Avenue platform is an innovative e-assessment system for learner performance evaluation, specifically in the contexts of world language, reading, and writing development. In this chapter we challenge designers, researchers, teachers, and students to re-envision the value of technology-mediated feedback by exploring the design of two contemporary e-assessment environments: 1) AvenueASL, an e-assessment system for postsecondary American Sign Language learners, and 2) AvenueDHH, a progress-monitoring environment for reading, writing, and language development with deaf or hard-of-hearing students in grades K-8. For each design we share a brief overview of the instructional problem, audience, and design challenge, followed by a description of the e-assessment environment and system integration.
