Open Embedded Assessments (OEA) has come a long way from their humble beginnings as a seed of an idea from the Center for Open and Sustainable Learning. From the proof of concept produced in 2013 and presented at OpenEd in 2014 to today, we've built robust, open source software in use by Lumen Learning in the United States and by MIT and partners in India. Thousands of learners have taken hundreds of thousands if not millions of assessments to help understand their learning in English and STEM topics.

This presentation will showcase the authoring and player environments developed by MIT and Atomic Jolt and used in the Connected Learning Initiative in India. These CLIx assessments are used by learners in Grade IX in about 400 government schools across four states in India. Learners engage with English, Math and Science learning modules in which OEA formative assessments are provided as activities embedded in the content modules. Learners interact with these assessments either on stand-alone computers or ones served by a local server in their computer labs. Authoring is accomplished by curriculum teams in India on cloud-based servers. Currently OEA supports a number of common item types (multiple choice, short answer, numerical answer with a tolerance, etc.) and a number of customized user interfaces on other common types (drag and drop, fill in the blank, audio response / file upload, etc.).
