Abstract Satellite positioning education presents a number of challenges for the teacher in providing effective student feedback and assessment. Assessing the student's ability to understand, analyse and apply complex multidimensional spatio-temporal relationships and geospatial data have been constrained by a two dimensional paper-based format. Consequently, the paper-based system has focused on summative assessment rather than on a student¿s formative development. It has also limited the assessment of testing acquisition of knowledge content rather than consideration of the student¿s individual strengths and weaknesses in addressing real world applications and problem solving. Final assessment results do not truly reflect the diversity of student skill sets or clearly identify areas for individual improvement around deeper conceptual understanding and technical application.
