Assessment plays an important role in the learning process. The advent of information technology has considerably changed the education sector. This paper aims to evaluate online quizzes as an assessment tool in higher education by focusing on different modes of assessment. The evaluation is practice-focused: two courses with different modes of online quizzes were considered. One of the main arguments of the paper was that regular online assessed quizzes motivated students to study regularly although over-assessment could increase the stress level of students. Further research needs to be carried out to determine the degree of learning taking place with online quizzes as opposed to traditional methods.
