Exploring the impact of using alternative assessments on students' learning during the pandemic
Department of Computing, Middle East College Muscat, Oman
Most of us are aware of the circumstances in which the learning has happened during the COVID-19 affected years. In this research paper we have taken up case study of one module named Data Structure and Algorithms to demonstrate the effects of new policy on this module. The main challenges faced while adopting to the new policy on alternate assessment design was retaining the quality of assessments to the tune of earlier appreciated levels. The appreciated efforts include the design of assignments that avoid similarity issues arising due to plagiarism, memorization, and coding against the clock. An effort has also been made to identify and utilize an on-line evaluation tool which is of immense help for the teachers involved in the evaluation process. A comparative analysis has been done to clearly distinguish between the top performers and the average performers. Further analysis and comparison of overall performance with the respective CGPA have shown exceptionally accurate results, which clearly indicate that the overall learning during the special semester is equally comparable with earlier semesters.
