Description

Online learning is one of the most important topics in distance learning, but practitioners and researchers have experienced difficulty in defining the process. Online Assessment and Measurement: Foundations and Challenges approaches the topic by finding a common ground to properly analyze online assessment and measurement.

Online Assessment and Measurement: Foundations and Challenges explores the development of online assessment and the way practitioners of online learning can modify their methodologies in the design, development, and delivery of their instruction to best accommodate their participants. It acts as a handbook for educators, trainers, support staff, librarians, human resource managers, and anyone interested in online assessment.
