Online teaching and assessment in higher educational institutions have become the new normal due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This chapter presents a systematic literature review on various digital assessment activities as the diversity of student assessment and feedback technologies cannot be identified from existing literature. Applying Creswell’s five steps and PRISMA guidelines, 40 peerreviewed articles are reviewed. The synthesis of the digital learning technologies for student assessment and feedback are classified into three categories: regular online examinations, alternative online assessment strategies, and ethical assessment. The authors focus on the recent digital technologies for student assessment as well as feedback and recommend empirical investigation on the functionalities and pedagogical designs.
