On this page we have collected information about digital tools you may encounter when taking an online exam or when your coursework is assessed. Read more about online exams below or go directly to the tool you are interested in by clicking in the list below.
Over the past few years, digital exams have become more common. Some exams are taken in a room on campus with a locked computer, while others are conducted remotely. On this page you will find information about the different digital tools you might need to use, but the way they are used will vary depending on the course. This means you must read the specific instructions for each exam in advance and ask your lecturer or course administrator if anything is unclear. Examples of questions that might be good to ask yourself are:
- Do I need to download a program or app before my exam?
- Can I test the digital tool in advance?
- Do I need log-in information in order to access my exam?
- Which browsers are compatible with the tools I need for my exam?
- Will the exam be monitored?
- Do I have the right to learning support during the exam, and how far in advance do I need to give notice of this?
More information about remote monitoring of exams can be found via the links below.
