It is a common knowledge that well-designed assessments go a long way in engaging learners in the online learning environment. They are used to reinforce learning as well as evaluate the learner’s comprehension of a course.
In eLearning courses, assessments are provided either at the completion of each unit (formative assessments) or at the completion of the course (summative assessments). Formative assessments evaluate the learner’s understanding of the topic covered in a chapter of an online course and reinforce the learning. Whereas, summative assessments are used to evaluate the learner’s understanding after the completion of the course.
