|Abstract: ||Innovation in assessment is becoming a natural choice in a tech- savvy world with the advent of the Internet. First, the purpose of this paper was to get more insight into the implementation of formative assessment through the e-learning tool in our University. The idea was to implement a series of weekly or fortnightly tests through the e-learning tool that supports automated feedback as a follow-up. The students’ perceptions on the formative assessment and its online test implementation were invited. Secondly, we wanted to study the eﬀects of formative assessment on students. Two categories of subjects are discussed here. Category 1 is where the internal assessment was done as a fair combination of formative assessments and a summative assessment. Category 2 is where the emphasis was on summative assessments through case studies and assignments. An analysis using course work grades and overall grades reveals that there are slight differences between the two categories. It is seen that there is a positive inﬂuence on students’ attitudes in the eﬀect of formative assessments, as reﬂected in the overall grades of Category 1 students.|
