Assignment is widely used as an important instructional tool across disciplines. With the development of technologies, creating and doing assignments online become possible. In practice, online assignments are often used to address problems with conventional paper assignments for large classes, such as delayed feedback. From the instructor’s point view, online assignments have a potential to provide students instant feedback and multiple practice opportunities for self-directed study. However, how do students feel about the online assignments? Are there any issues with online assignments? A survey was conducted among a class of sophomore engineering students who did online assignments for a semester. This paper discusses students’ responses to the switch from paper to online assignments, and the underlying practical and pedagogical aspects of online assignment in student learning.
