Blended and online delivery of courses has become increasingly relevant during lockdowns and physical distancing requirements. Delivering and managing online and digital assessment has been a crucial part of blended/online courses. This presentation discusses some strategies used for digital assessment of theory and practical work in mechatronics related courses at Wintec. Two methods used for conducting tests via digital means is discussed. A method of using video submissions to assess practical work demonstration is also presented. The appropriateness of the digital assessment methods is analysed via anonymous student feedback.
