Abstract
This paper proposes a blockchain-based learning environment to assess student performance in group projects. By using the ?smart contract? technology, which enacts blockchain transactions when certain conditions have been met, the environment verifies the consistency of student practice and his/her relations with other group members. Technical description of the learning environment is provided, as well as an evaluation of the blockchain technology in some real student group assignments. As conclusions, blockchain technology and smart contracts can be used to provide a reliable proof of value to measure learning process and group outcomes. The learning environment contributes to some problems of information asymmetry and miscommunication because of its decentralization and immutability. As information and value are published and maintained collectively, the authenticity of information is ensured and valid for formal assessment in higher education.
