As more and more institutes of higher education start offering computer-mediated distance learning courses, it becomes increasingly important that these courses are evaluated effectively. This paradigm of learning requires a new model of assessment. This paper presents a model that focuses on six constructs that computer-mediated distance learning courses should examine: Teaching and Learning, Developing a Community of Learners, the Instructor, The Student, Implementation of the Course, and Technology Use. These constructs become important elements in the design and evaluation of distance learning classes. This paper reviews each construct and makes recommendations for implementing assessment procedures for each area.
