The traditional pen and paper exam is overwhelmingly the preferred method of assessing students in Norwegian higher education. There is a pressing need to explore alternative approaches that can authentically assess critical competencies needed for solving real-world tasks that professionals typically face in their field. In this paper, we present a solution to address the challenge of applying authentic assessment to a practical course in Network and System Administration (NSA). Furthermore, the solution we propose provides formative feedback to the candidates while a task is being evaluated.
