This last lesson will focus on two important aspects of assessment: how to deliver meaningful feedback online and the thorny issue of so-called e-cheating; that is, how to prevent students from copying and cheating in online tests and assignments. 

How to deliver meaningful feedback…

Online learning environments can promote students’ autonomy and learning awareness by providing students with reflective materials and performative activities which enable them to make their own choices, reflect on what and how they are learning, interact and exchange ideas with their peers and monitor their progress. However, when learning online, students also need to feel guided and supported, not only by their teachers but also by their peers. That’s why feedback plays a fundamental role in any student’s learning progress. On the one hand, feedback leads students to think critically and reflect on their work; on the other hand, it builds strong teacher-student relationships and boosts students’ motivation to keep up the good work and progress furtherly (positive feedback), or find a strategy to improve and overcome the encountered difficulties (negative feedback).
