Keywords:Distance Education, Distant Assessment, Preventing Cheating
Due to the restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic situation, higher education institutions of Georgia, including Batumi State Maritime Academy, had to move to distance learning within a limited time frame. Remotely was carried out not only teaching (lectures and practical works) but assessment processes as well. The paper discusses the disadvantages of distance assessment based on a one-year survey (done by the authors of the given article), analyses the students’ mid-term and final assessment results before and during the pandemic period and suggests possible ways to eliminate them.
