On this page, you can find information about digital tools that you might encounter when writing an exam or when getting feedback on an assignment. Read more about digital exams below or go directly to the tool you’re interested in by clicking the links in the list.
In the last couple of years, digital exams have become more common. Some exams are written in person but with a locked computer – while some exams are carried out entirely remotely. On this page, you can find information about the digital tools that you might have to use, but the context in which the tools are used looks different in different programmes. This means that you need to find out well in advance what applies for your specific exam and ask your teacher or course administrator if something is unclear. Examples of questions that are good to ask yourself are:
- Do you need to download any program or app before the exam?
- Do you have the option to test out the digital tools in advance?
- Do you need any log-in credentials to access the exam?
- What web browser works with the tools that you’ll be using for the exam?
- Will your exam be supervised?
- Do you have the right to learning support during the exam and if so, how well in advance do you have to let the exam coordinator know that you need it?
More information about how you can prepare when an exam will be supervised remotely can be found in the following link.
If you have the right to learning support, you can find more information about what applies to you during a digital exam on the following link:
