Challenges and Opportunities of Online Assessment The state of online assessment • The transition to computer-based testing has brought new levels of efficiency. – • Cost-effectiveness, analytical tools, storage capability and instant feedback to assessment processes are just some of the improvements. In contrast to traditional computer-based testing stationed within access of the test maker or some overseer, online assessment requires sufficient and reliable internet bandwidth, among other things.

Challenges and Opportunities of Online Assessment Challenges • The lack of moderator control over testing conditions, uneven access to technology and resources, technical difficulties and hardware inconsistencies can impact the necessary impartiality of testing. • Additional consideration must be given to ensure the integrity of information and data security. • Some suggested strategies include focusing on more subjective items such as case studies that call for more analysis and application, restricting access with passwords and usernames, and randomizing questions and order.

Challenges and Opportunities of Online Assessment Opportunities • Many human resources departments currently make use of online assessments at the first stage of the recruiting process, as well as at the selection stage. • After an applicant clicks on an "apply now" call-to-action from an online job advertisement, they are seamlessly channeled to a custom-created screening stage with application questions and behavioral and skill assessments that aim to predict future job performance. • These online tests help take the guesswork out of selection, creating great efficiencies and cost savings in the recruitment process.

Challenges and Opportunities of Online Assessment The future • Most organizations are just beginning to explore the vast potential that comes with working with online exam software. • Distance assessment should take advantage of the best features of the online environment, including the development of critical thinking questions determined by the flow of online communications or formative techniques that enable selfregulation of learning. • For instance, hyperlinks integrated into testing materials can lead learners to sources that explain incorrect answers with flexible pacing.
