Tests and quizzes are common assessment tools because they are fast, easy, efficient, and can cover a lot of content. Testing provides an objective and systematic way for identifying student’s abilities and achievements.  They provide numbers or scores to describe a student’s performance in relation to others. Tests are often used as benchmark requirements for entrance into specific programs or if a discrepancy in learning is suspected. 

Online courses do not often imply teacher’s support and there is no opportunity to ask why this or that answer is right/wrong, which makes comment vital in the process of learning.
