The scope of possible research questions is broad, but has limits. In particular, questions should directly relate to computer-aided assessment of undergraduate mathematics:

  • Computer-aided – relying on technology in a fundamental way;
  • Assessment – concerning formative or summative assessment, rather than teaching or learning tools (though of course the line between these and formative assessment is blurry);
  • Of undergraduate mathematics – based on topics or task-types which are relevant to mathematics as studied at undergraduate level, for instance in universities.


In this manuscript, we summarise the process used to create the research agenda, and give an overview of the themes:
