The sample consisted of 101 university students taking Information Technology course from Art Teaching, Social Studies Teaching, and Pre-School Teaching Departments. The research has been designed a mixed-method study including both quantitative (students' attitudes after midterm and final exams) and qualitative data (students’ opinions about online exams). The quantitative results showed there was no statistically significant difference in students' attitudes after midterm and final exams. There was also no significant difference in the attitude scores by gender, age, and region. However, statistically significant differences were found by major department for some of the sub-factors of the questionnaire.
