On-line teaching applications are very limited in Turkish higher education system. Most of the staff who wants to benefit from on-line teaching technologies in their courses, neither can use these technologies nor evaluate the students' achievement effectively. Text based instructional materials, asynchronous communication techniques and inappropriate evaluation methods have made poor the quality of the on-line teaching in on-line courses. Since an effective on-line teaching requires the advanced on-line teaching technologies including evaluation of students' achievement effectively it is an important requirement to investigate the competencies and views of teaching staff related to on-line teaching assessment.
