Abstract: The aim of this study was to examine the research of open access studies conducted and published in 'Web of Science' indexed electronic journals and publications, as well as Master & Doctorate level open thesis studies from PQDT Open, OADT Org., EthOS and Council of Higher Education Thesis Center-Turkey on "web based/mobile teacher assessment". The total number of articles reached was 1330. According to the results depending on selected variables, there is a clear, steady increase in the number of publications on this subject throughout the years, and researchers from USA are the clear leaders in the order list; followed by UK, China, Australia and Taiwan. The leading universities are from USA, Taiwan and UK as well. "Articles", "Proceeding Papers" and "Meeting Abstracts" are the most preferred document types used. Following the number of articles on "computer science" and "engineering" research areas, articles classified to "Educational Research" areas are popular as well. Interestingly, "teacher assessment" oriented articles mostly were more focused to "assessing students by teachers", but very few examples exists for "assessing teachers by students". After this research and the results achieved, the authors of this article has conclusions that sufficient information exists to further study the title subject towards a new PhD study.
