Formative assessment has been shown to be an effective teaching tool, yet is infrequently used in practice. With the intent of building a formative e-assessment platform, we examine research on formative practices and supporting computer-based systems with a focus on: institutional barriers to adoption of previous systems; senses in which students and teachers can improve their practices across varying timescales; and collectible data (self-reported or otherwise) necessary or advantageous in supporting these processes. From this research we identify the minimal set of data which adequately supports these processes of improvement, arrive at a set of requirements and recommendations for an innovative system which collects, processes, and presents this data appropriately, and from these requirements design the architecture of an extensible electronic formative assessment system which balances the need for complex long-term analytics with that of accessibility.
