The purpose of this study is to understand the opinion of teaching staff in distance education systems, on the assessment and evaluation process, and to compare their opinion with the one observed within the context of formal education. In this respect, interviews were carried out with 4 teaching staff working in both distance education and formal education frameworks. The participants revealed that exams and assignments were the most frequent means used in assessment and evaluation process in distance education, whereas the most important problems faced in this process is the inability to make observations, and the inevitable comparison with formal education.
