Online Assessment

There are various methods available for lecturers to assess, check knowledge, and provide feedback online. All teaching staff are able to create and manage their own online assessments (e.g. dropboxes and quizzes). We encourage staff to create their own assessment artefacts wherever possible, as ownership of assessments sits with course teams. However, if required, BaL Digital can provide support with this through the use of our online assessment request form.

The assessment tools available in Moodle have different features to allow them to be used for different purposes.
