Yes, you can do this with Exodus.  Just store it in a CONSTANT MONOMIAL field and call write_element_data().  It will come out as an element field that Paraview (or anything else that reads Exodus) can view.

Has anyone done any visualization of element quantities (I have in mind the element wise error estimates)? I don't see any examples and only an inkling of capability, but wanted to double check before I start up the discussion of implementing this capability (I have some suggestions). I'd prefer not to hack it up as a nodal quantity since most visualization tools can differentiate between nodal and element quantities.
