In this paper we propose the outline of a service based architecture for bringing assessment tech-niques to open e-learning environments. We first describe a use case scenario for a generic as-sessment framework offering personalized as-sessment generation and then present its basic ar-chitecture as part of the Personal Reader Frame-work. The generic assessment framework enables the search for the appropriate assessment resources after checking the learner.s last saved perform-ances and specific needs (e.g. language prefer-ences, device requirements). In our assessment framework personalization functionalities are available as web services. The communication between these services is based on the Semantic Web technologies and does not need a central-ized control. The assessment functionalities are defined in a separate Web service, which a user can subscribe/ un-subscribe as s/he likes.
