Remote Digital Assessment

Due to the pandemic, assessment independent of place and time is high on the agenda. The Remote Assessment working group is committed to pooling knowledge development around this subject and is looking ahead to the future by developing a vision on this theme.

The goal of the working group

The aim of the working group is to contribute to good remote assessment in higher education. The activities of the working group focus on identifying issues and actively sharing new insights about remote assessment. And the working group will also promote solutions to the issues, develop practical tools for the successful use of remote assessment and join forces of the various networks.


The working group focuses on both formative and summative remote assessment. The themes that the working group will be working on in the near future include test goal & design, procedures, organisation, online proctoring and vision on assessment.
