Online Assessment Practices at the Higher Education During and Post Covid-19 Pandemic

Editor: Dr. Fouzia Rouaghe  &   Co-editor: Dr. Ouafa Ouarniki

The Rationale

COVID-19 has been tremendously affecting life almost every part of the world. School cancellations were a reasonable response to the burgeoning virus pandemic and the unprecedented circumstances required the immediate closure of all educational institutions without notice or planning. Studies were suspended and postponed and thus assessment and testing were no exception. What was a grave issue was that due to the cancellation and postponement of tests, some students were very anxious about missing out important opportunities and others were eager to know how to advance to the next level. Yet, there exist several challenges of offline testing; involving the wearing of masks and gloves and the need for 1.5m of space between desks and the difficulty in securing test sites because of the vast clusters of people. Some institutions (schools and universities) resorted to computer based testing or online testing as a resolution to this issue and the situation was slowly stabilizing with some online at-home tests being offered for a limited period. Nonetheless, the introduction of online at-home testing was a big challenge for most schools and universities because of several reasons such as resources, internet services, internet affordability (as regards students and teachers), and test fairness and credibility. From one hand, based on the testimony of several university teachers, they did experience many difficulties while designing and administering an online test/exam. Amongst these challenges, were internet connectivity as previously mentioned, the nature of questions bank available on the e-platform and which does not allow much freedom to the teacher design appropriate exam questions as regards validity and reliability. Also, the rate of cheating was highly probable like screen sharing, using advanced smart phones applications and getting a second party assistance. From another hand, even though online tests were possible in some cases, it appeared that students preferred offline exams and quizzes that they had already experienced and are familiar with. Also, learners showed dissatisfaction about the nature of the test questions and complained about the time allotted. Many of them as well questioned the tests validity and reliability. Additionally, many students were against the online testing because it was totally new and they were struggling to adapt. They complained also about the technical issue, computer literacy and the nature of instructions given by the teacher. The book considers the main challenges of online language assessment when shifting from a face to face to an online environment during and post Covid- 19 crisis.  The book editor encourages non –theoretical research-based chapters that demonstrate real-world experiences, and practical examples of the academic field of language assessment and testing.
