The emergence of coronavirus disease-2019 has accounted for major disruptions of all sectors, including medical education. As there was no clarity about the re-opening of medical institutions, we shifted from the conventional model to an online form of teaching-learning and assessment. The online assessments can be carried out in different ways and have been associated with a wide range of benefits for the teachers and the students. The online assessments tend to have multiple concerns as well, which are predominantly linked to the involved financial costs, internet issues, assessment of all the domains of learning, etc. Most of the above challenges in online assessments can be handled effectively by sustained administrative support, initial financial investment to establish the system, and the appointment of a qualified technical team to operate the system in the institution. In conclusion, online assessments among medical students have to be carried out to assess the progression of learning. The need of the hour is to overcome the prevailing challenges and strengthen the overall process of teaching-learning by addressing them better through administrative and technical support.
