Abstract

A new approach of academic assessment has been implemented in electronic engineering course in Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM). The online assessment method is used as an alternative to conventional assessment method used for years. Unlike the conventional approach, the online assessment does not require the students and lecturer to be face-to-face during the assessment and it also gives more flexibility for students to choose the assessment time. Given the ease in implementing this type of assessment, it still maintains high quality of questions given to students. At the end of the assessment period, it does attain the objective of the assessment and it also reflects the understanding of students towards the intended topic of the assessment. We conclude that the implementation of this assessment approach is a success to gauge the performance of students and it also can serve as an effective complement to conventional assessment approach.
