Abstract

As networked computer technologies become more integrated into teaching and learning in higher education, questions of supporting online assessment are becoming of greater interest to both students and staff. Are the principles of assessment affected when such activities take place online? What are the advantages and challenges of assessment online? How can the technology help or hinder the underlying pedagogy? What training or professional development do students and staff need to be able to successfully engage with assessment online?
