This paper is a pilot study that investigates how the use of virtual learning environment can enhance or support assessment for learning mathematics by the KS4 students with special education needs in school sector, and then reports the finding. A virtual learning environment is an electronic system that can provide online interaction of various kinds that can take place between learners and tutors, including online learning and assessment (JISC, 2003). It is a learning platform that supports teaching and learning programmes, such as AfL (assessment for learning). The platform also encourages personalised and collaborative learning, enabling students to carry out peer and self assessment. The finding suggests that VLE enhances assessment for Learning by offering instant feedback and feed-forward to SEN students who thus take responsibility for their own learning, and have also been motivated to correct their work. Furthermore, evidence of teacher – student interactivity which facilitates greater understanding of mathematical concepts is highlighted by the study.
