Abstract

In Vietnam, the inspection and evaluation in education is usually performed by traditional assessments, including regular testing and periodic examination. The biggest advantage of these assessments are that they are easy to deploy and fairly accurately measure student learning outcomes. Evaluation methods are also plentiful, including review on paper, test papers and test with comments on the paper. Oral test can be conducted regularly to help teachers monitor progress. In comparison to more modern evaluation models, the traditional assessment has some limitations such as unclear mechanisms to generates timely feedback between teachers and students, and inflexible in terms of being able to adjust active teaching and learning activities in a responsive manner. They also lack effective support for the evaluation of a group activity.In this article, we propose to apply model assessment modern through a web tool with a number of algorithms to allocate marks, in particular using the WebPA tool to support the evaluation of peers and self-assessment for group work.
