The Assessment Game: Is Online Really the Winner

Assessment of student learning and the appropriate method has been an ever discussed topic in education. Additionally, the desire to measure higher order thinking has dictated the evolution of assessment to move away from traditional multiple choice exams. Yet, there are times that this format of measure is appropriate. As part of a request by students, a pilot was completed to understand student performance using online assessment verses in-classroom assessment. The results show that online assessment provides numerous benefits for the student perspective; but these benefits may not manifest in actual performance outcomes.
