This paper advocates for competence of ICT trainees on online assessment in the University of Calabar, Nigeria. A quasi-experimental design was used for the study. The population consisted of all the staff trained on ICT in the University of Calabar, Nigeria. A total of two hundred and fifty (250) staff trainees and five instructors were involved in the study. Purposive sampling technique was used to sample forty-six (46) staff trainees for the study. One instructor served as a study assistant. A 20-item Questionnaire on ICT Training ADAPT QUIZ (QOITAQ) was used as instrument for the study. The data collected were analysed using percentages. Findings revealed that ICT trainees, through online assessment, performed better than untrained staff in educational assessment. The study recommended ICT training and online assessment of trainees at least once or twice annually in institutions to assess performance of staff not only in Nigeria but also in Africa to catch-up with the trends in Global Education.
