Background: The effect of covid pandemic has left a vacuum effecting every field of life, with lots of
question, especially on group meeting that including teaching at all levels. The impact of web-based
assessment practices on the performance of undergraduate medical students is not widely studied. The
modern digital global world provides e-assessment, contributing a crucial role and has powerful effects on
student learning and their outcomes. 1–3 Designed e-assessments may even provide a scale to measure the
progress and the effects on the outcome of institutions, including a tool to target the attention of students to
focus on the learning outcomes. As e-learning includes various modes of communication both visual and
audio in different formats i.e, animation, visual streaming; it motivates many e-learning processes, as it can
be done in or out of the classroom, and has been proved an open-source web-based learning management
system (LMS), managing the tools required for collaboration, communication, evaluation, and assessment
for higher education. Online quizzes are methods for graded assessment that offers students an opportunity
to gauge their level of performance on a topic including feedback to the faculty to make necessary changes
in the ongoing curriculum.
Materials and Methods: 100 First-year medical students were registered and the dates for assessment
and conducting of survey before and after was fixed. Thirty MCQ and SEQ from various sections of human
physiology were preloaded on the Microsoft team’s portal, from the topics covered during pandemic live on
net and the students used their devices to answer the questions within the stipulated time. The results were
automatically loaded at the end of the assessment. Pre- and post-test survey were conducted to investigate
the significance of the E-assessment.
Results: The students responded that the e-assessment was easy to assess, unique as they received
immediate feedback, customized, and flexible. There was a significant difference in the post-test survey.
Discussion: Technology has created new methods of assessment for today’s generation of students, and
these advances are here to stay.
Conclusion: It is possible to conduct online examinations in medical school regularly. The e learning can
enhance student interests and allows immediate feedback. Since e learning is not well established in India,
we hope to create awareness and change the outlook of medical students in the online teaching learning
and assessment program.
