This research aims to investigate the existing practices in assessment of students’ knowledge and skills outside the classroom locally and internationally, to find out the students’ preferences/perception of the assessment conducted outside the classroom, and to provide recommendations for the teachers to make assessment more valid, dynamic, and practical. The target audience is undergraduate students and university lecturers. A mixed method research was chosen for this study – a survey, distributed to students and teachers, and observations during the lectures. The findings reveal that the applied assessment mainly focuses on the performance inside the classroom.
