Topic 2: Benefits of Digital Assessment in Education

According to Kiryakova (2021), digital assessment:

  • Enables the use of different assessment techniques that align with learning goals and pedagogical approaches
  • Facilitates quick and easy assessment of a large number of learners due to the high degree of automation
  • Provides immediate personalized feedback that guides learners
  • Ensures objectivity through automation of assessment activities or evaluation based on pre-set criteria and templates
  • Can be implemented at any time and place, allowing for greater flexibility
  • Allows for reusability of activities or their components in different combinations and contexts
  • Offers a wide variety of question types in e-quizzes
  • Enables the assessment of a group of learners as a whole, taking into account individual contributions.
  • Digital tools facilitate certain assessment tasks such as communication among educators-learners and learners with their peers and monitoring of collaborative writing software that could be used for peer review purposes. (Tracii, 2020).
