Assessment and Learning in Practice Settings (ALPS), a collaborative programme between five Yorkshire Universities, has won the international 'Innovation Award' in the Tertiary, FE & HE category at the 2009 Handheld Learning Awards. The award was given for ALPS’ work on a mobile assessment and e-portfolio system to support Health and Social Care students on work-based practice.

The theme for this year’s awards was ‘Creativity, Innovation, Inclusion & Transformation’, recognising that 2009 is the European year of creativity and innovation. Now in its fifth year the Handheld Learning Awards has become the largest event of its kind. It brings together thought leaders, innovators, practitioners, developers, policy and decision-makers from the education, technology and entertainment sectors.

ALPS is a Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning based at the University of Leeds. The ALPS project has also recently been nominated for the 'Best use of mobile learning' award at the e-Learning Awards 2009 which takes place 12th November, 2009.

York-based learning technology company MyKnowledgeMap worked with T-Mobile and mobile software specialist ecommnet to create the mobile assessment and e-portfolio system for ALPS. The system supports the creation, distribution and storing of assessment tools on mobile devices. It allows tutors to create assessments based around core health and social care competences and send them to the devices of students on work-based practice.

Students use their devices to gather feedback from practice assessors, peers, service users and carers. When an assessment is uploaded to a student’s e-portfolio, the competency frameworks within the ALPS Assessment Suite allow the tutor to map the skills the student has demonstrated against specific performance criteria.

The project has already been of benefit to hundreds of students, and there is huge scope to improve work-based learning and assessment for much greater numbers if ALPS processes and outputs are embedded when the programme comes to an end in September 2010.
