This paper investigates the impact of online formative assessments on student performance in an introductory accounting module. The online formative assessments were introduced during the Covid-19 pandemic. The online formative assessments were objective tests. The impact is considered from two perspectives: students’ perceptions of online formative assessments gathered via an online questionnaire; and an investigation into whether the use of online formative assessments helped to increase students’ performance in the end of semester exam. The study reveals a number of interesting findings. First, the online formative assessments were generally perceived as being useful by the students, and second the study shows a positive relationship between online formative assessments usage and exam performance.
