A major issue in teaching and learning has been the assessment in emergency remote situation like COVID019 pandemic. Students’ performance score collated at multiple points towards assessment as learning approach can be used for triangulation and summative decision of candidates’ fate if the crisis continues. Next to assessment as learning approach adopted would be awarding the students for their performance with partial credit system to encourage them taking assessment online. Partial credit in assessment adopted during the CORONA-19 crisis is motivating for students to take tests with fun. Receiving partial credit for achieving completely correct answer has the opportunity of immediate and direct feedback. A successful technique to provide an alternative to Immediate Feedback Assessment Technique (IF-AT). The scratch card system has been designed and developed by the authors as Partial Credit Assessment using Digital Scratch-off (PCA-DS) technique guided by ADDIE instructional model with user-friendly steps to follow. PCA-DS in a four options, One Best Answer (OBA) items may decides 0-100 % score depending on number of attempts students may take to achieve the correct answer. A first attempt correct answer is usually awarded 3 marks, two attempts equal to 2 marks, three attempts equal to 1 mark and last attempt equal to 0 marks. The PCA DS technique has been successfully used by the authors in multiple modalities of teaching and Faculty Development Activities (FDA), Team Based Learning (TBL), Virtual Medical Clinic (VMC) and Task Based Learning online with encouraging faculty and students’ remarks. PCA-DS is presented for its design and user-friendly steps in an easy to follow technique.
