Abstract

This chapter argues that distance educators need to rethink assessment practices in the light of the benefits and problems encountered in the online context. It looks at the fundamentals of assessment that need to be carried over from traditional approaches and then analyzes the attributes of the online environment that can be used to rethink the process. It also reviews examples of innovative assessment strategies and identifies a set of principles of good practice in online assessment.
