This project was designed to develop the use and effectiveness of digitally supported patchwork text assessments in a range of traditional academic subjects within different Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). It was funded under the JISC Learning and Teaching Innovation Grants for a twelve month period between June 2010 and July 2011. It was co-ordinated, managed and delivered by the University of Cumbria.

In addition to the University of Cumbria, the project brought together four partner HEIs: University of Liverpool, University of Derby, University of Bedfordshire, University of Wolverhampton; and The Centre for Recording Achievement (CRA).
