Participants noted other challenges, including the fast pace at which new devices are being developed. Students may quickly adapt to new technologies, but assessment developers will need to be mindful of ways to design for evolving screen types and other variations in hardware, because images may render very differently on future devices than on those currently available, for example. Other challenges with compatibility were noted, but most participants agreed that the key is to proceed in incremental steps toward a long-term goal that is grounded in objectives for teaching and learning.
