Activity: Talks or PresentationsOther Invited Talks or Presentations


The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has brought challenges to higher education teaching and learning. Much attention has been put on online course construction and delivery to ensure the effectiveness of online learning. However, higher education assessment deserves more focus as it is also significantly impacted by the sudden switch from face-to-face to online. To examine how universities and colleges respond to the challenges in higher education assessment during the pandemic, this paper investigates a case study of Lingnan University in Hong Kong to explore an appropriate assessment framework for online teaching and learning in a liberal arts educational context. Through a qualitative approach, this study interviewed faculty members, teaching and learning center administrators, and students to explore the effectiveness of the measurements applied by Lingnan University and its faculty members. This case study aims to provide insights for improving higher education assessment regarding effectiveness and fairness during the COVID-19 pandemic.
