Tourism, ChatGPT, Exam, Distance education


The biggest concern about online assignments and exams in distance education is that students cannot be supervised sufficiently. Artificial intelligence applications based on language modeling techniques, such as ChatGPT, are also important factors that may increase this concern. Accordingly, this study aims to show how ChatGPT performs in the accuracy and validation stages of homework and multiple-choice exams in tourism. When the result of the study is examined, it has been determined that the emergence of technologies such as ChatGPT poses a significant threat to the integrity of online exams. The fact that ChatGPT gave incorrect answers to homework questions and that the sources specified did not exist showed that ChatGPT did not achieve success in the accuracy and verification of such questions. However, it was observed that it was pretty successful against multiple-choice questions. Out of 20 multiple-choice questions, it answered 16 of them correctly and 4 of them incorrectly. This situation revealed that ChatGPT performed at the level expected from a good tourism student in measuring multiple-choice tourism knowledge.
