The COVID-19 crisis caused an urgent imperative for digital strategies by learning institutions. The explosive use of distance education shifted the paradigm of learning and re-characterized the educational assessment process. To produce authentic learning cultures, assessment techniques must mark success during disruptions and transformations periods. The extent of technology’s differentiating role in this pandemic crisis is stark. Informatics can serve a variety of infrastructural functions by catalyzing the power of technology to aggregate and appropriate micro-data to fuel effective decision-making. Educational institutions can maintain dynamic information about academic activities to authentically measure performance.

Digital platforms are viable solutions for collecting performance data across the campus and addressing the growing concern of an equitable education. When integrated seamlessly, learning management systems, make academic processes more comprehensive and expansive. Digital assessment makes it possible to obtain a more accurate measure of excellence in education. The purpose of this research is to describe the implementation and evaluation of how digital assessment augments the educational experience and builds a culture of institution-wide performance excellence. It reviews an assessment information system that collects curricular and co-curricular student data in a dynamic digital network.
