Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak and the lock-down and social distancing strategies adopted to contain it have drastically affected our daily lives and the routine businesses. Provision of educational services in a continuous and useful manner in such circumstances is a massive challenge and requires innovative methods. Effective assessment and feedback play a pivotal role in traditional teaching and learning approaches and it is of even more vital importance in disruptive conditions. This paper discusses different assessment and feedback techniques in the online delivery of higher education courses in lockdown scenarios. The effectiveness of these approaches is evaluated through qualitative and quantitative study of student and staff feedback for an engineering course being delivered as part of a transnational education (TNE) program. In the light of the results, recommendations are made to improve the assessment and feedback activities in disruptive circumstances.
