In this article we provide an overview of the ASSESSnet project, funded through a Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions grant by the European Commission Research Executive Agency (H2020-MSCA-IF-2018 845783). The project aims to analyse assessment practices in foreign language courses that involve virtual exchange (VE) and to explore teacher beliefs about the shape and the content of assessment in the virtual contexts where these exchanges take place. The research findings of this in-progress project, illustrated with relevant examples of promising practices, will be used to formulate practical recommendations for improving the type, content and implementation of assessment in VE projects across diverse educational contexts. In the following, we outline the detailed objectives of the project, the methodology used and the projected outcomes. We conclude with a presentation of the project website and an invitation to participate in the project by sharing further examples of good practices with other practitioners.
