Abstract
Personalization is becoming a crucial factor in many areas of life including education. Currently, a learning environment (LE) such as moodle, ILIAS, OLAT and dotLRN is far from being able to adapt the assessment to the students'individual context, prior knowledge and preferences, because personalization is still insufficiently implemented or even not addressed in this system. In contrast, an adaptive assessment system (AAS) takes the students'characteristics into account in order to personalize the assessment, which may result in more objective assessment findings. This paper analyzes how current open standards and specifications can be used to achieve integration between LEs and AASs seamlessly, so that they can profit from each other. For that reason, both LEs and AASs requirements are analyzed, because they have great influence on the further considerations. LEs require control information as well as assessment information from the AASs, which in turn require studen t as well as assessment information from the LEs. As a result of the paper, an interworking of several standards and specifications (OPAQUE, IEEE LTSC PAPI, IMS LIP, IMS QTI, etc.) is proposed, which can be used to achieve integration between LEs and AASs.
