Offering online assessments means that people outside your geographical area, people who are time poor or people who cannot attend classes regularly can get a chance to study. Online assessment, however, can result in some learners feeling disengaged. It can also increase the risk of cheating.

However, the best way to increase engagement and reduce cheating online is to increase your learners' motivation and their interest in why they are being assessed. Increasing the intrinsic or 'what's in it for me (WIIFM)' value of online assessments provides a win-win situation as it provides a better overall experience and improves learner completions while reducing the chances of cheating.

This webinar will provide a practical approach on how to design and manage online assessments.  The session will also cover processes for managing the risk of online assessments.
