All e-Assessment systems have several challenges, such as accurate evaluation, security and data privacy, performance, scalability etc. In this paper we focus on e-Assessment scalability and performance. We propose a SOA architecture of a cloud hosted e-Assessment system which uses scalability and elasticity in order to achieve sustainable performance. Our solution consists of two subsystems, the first for management and reports, and the other for on-demand activities during the assessments. It reduces the overall costs since it uses minimum resources utilized only during the e-Assessment. Better performance is expected to be achieved since the active subsystem works with much smaller data compared to the centralized one.
