The article discusses a study which examined whether instructional assessment and grade assignment is influenced by student location. In this study, "near" location is considered as the location where the instructor is physically present and from which the instruction originates, whereas the "far" section is the remote location linked via the interactive distance learning studio system. Findings showed a consistent difference in the way students on the near and far sides assess course instruction.
