The aim of this research is to examine the pre-service teachers’ opinions on online assessment during the Covid-19 process. In the study, which was designed with a basic interpretive design, data were collected from 138 teacher candidates with a structured interview form consisting of open-ended questions created by the researchers and analyzed by content analysis. According to the findings of the study, the pre-service teachers stated that they were evaluated by methods such as online exam, homework, online class participation, and online presentation and that each evaluation method had advantages and disadvantages. When the teacher candidates compared face-to-face assessment with online assessment, they focused on the disadvantages of homework and online exams. They indicated that the online assessment method could be in the form of online exam, qualified homework, and participation in the course, depending on the nature of the course. The findings were discussed within the framework of the literature, and suggestions were presented to researchers and practitioners.
