The paper reports on the findings of this project in terms of teacher and moderator experiences, and provides suggestions on how e-portfolios may be incrementally introduced in high-stakes national assessments, enabling a more efficient moderation and assessment process. Comment is also provided as to the possibility of extending this process to all subjects at a national level.Key Words: Microsoft OneNote, e-portfolios, school based assessment, high-stakes, practicability, risk-management, moderation, efficiency
