Assessment and Evaluation in Mega Universities



The study examines assessment and evaluation procedures in mega universities. Within the scope of the study, the literature focusing on mega universities offering open and distance education and their assessment and evaluation systems were examined first. Later, the results of the questionnaire administered in the study-specific mega universities to support the findings obtained from the literature were presented. The results of the study showed that assessment tools used by mega universities to determine the achievement levels of learners considerably vary and the most frequently applied assessment tool was found to be multiple-choice tests. Finally, the study also revealed that the number of the learners and raters was the main determinant factor affecting the choice of assessment tools used in these institutions.
