The presentation aims at eliciting insight into the results of ongoing research regarding evolving trends toward online assessment in higher education. The focus pinpoints online as one of the most trending forms available during the global pandemic. These difficult times encouraged everybody to be resilient in life. It also means that in higher education, students need the ability to resist being affected or to recover readily from difficulties. The previous years have put enormous pressure on our students and teachers, too. We initiated the study in 2019 to reveal the intriguing question of students’ and assessors’ attitudes towards online assessment. The research questions included the attitudes towards the latest trends through an in-depth experimental process which gives us the opportunity to believe in a dazzling future regarding technology-enhanced education. Materials and methods include surveys, a needs analysis and thorough investigations regarding participants' attitudes towards online testing. The participants were student volunteers at the University of Pécs Medical School (UPMS), Hungary. Over 400 respondents from more than 28 countries participated in the survey, which gives us an international and intercultural insight into how students with different cultural and educational backgrounds deal with the evolving online world. The survey shows that nobody has been left untouched by the impact of the global pandemic, and great change has been forced upon us all. The results show the pandemic’s impact, which brought the slumbering online world of assessing roaring alive, fully operational and now bears phenomenal relevance in our resilient world.
