It’s on again, the annual online science assessment that brings all year 8 students in NSW, Australia together on one day to do an online science assessment, the next one is November 13.
Each year we make this happen by using the best cloud platform technologies available and the latest techniques for building scalable assessment systems.
Last year we peaked at 500 schools – this year we think we might go just a little higher, we are also expecting a few more students on this year, so this year we have 500 Windows Azure processor cores to handle the demand.
We like to share, so you can watch what’s happening on the servers as the event unfolds.

We will also share more information and answer questions etc on Twitter throughout the day – just use the #tag #essa2012
