Abstract

While online assessments can provide new opportunities to redesign traditional assessments, they also present challenges related to design and communication to support students. Open-ended online assessment may place more onus on students to make choices, interpret assessment requirements and self-regulate their learning. This chapter presents some challenges of re-imagined online assessment design for teachers and students in one case study example, drawn from a collective case study. The chapter outlines student, teacher and contextual challenges that affect how a task may be interpreted and reflects on practical implications for the design of online assessment for learning.
