In an Exam system, the exam is always connected to a course. Exam has been connected to the Academic and Student Affairs system of the University of Turku, so the course details (name, code, scope) are obtained from there. It is possible to connect several exams into one course (for example, different exams for major and minor students).
In Exam, the exam is constructed with different topics and questions within the topics. You can use the randomisation of questions, where the system allots the desired amount of questions out of the question groups you have created for the exam, and that are considered topics in Exam. You can also add one or more similar questions to every exam. The amount of assessment points needs to be the same between different questions allotted within a topic.
Topics are also used to paginate the exam, the questions within the same topic will be shown to the student on the same page in the exam. If you use randomised questions in the exam, the questions will always be paginated onto different pages. You will be able to view the student’s exam view in the exam preview when you are creating the exam.
Start creating exams with the help of the instructions found on the bottom of this page.
An exam reservable for all students. When the general exam has been created in Exam and it has been published, the student can reserve the exam time. Starting from August 2021 examiners have to inform students, that the exam is bookable. The examiner can add the registration link for the students of the general exam (at the bottom of the Publish -page) and information of its availability e.g. into the course home page Moodle and into the study guide. Student can copy‐paste the registration link to the address row of the browser and can directly register for the exam and make reservation. Students can also find exam from Exams- system by find box (e.g. with the course code or name of the teacher) and make reservation in Exam-system.
The examiner can view the real-time situation of the exam reservations for the general exam in the system as well as the exams that are waiting for assessment after the students have taken their exams in the e-exam room. Every Monday morning, the examiner will receive a compilation notice on the upcoming reservations of the open exams as well as on the exams waiting for assessment.
Personal exam: Creating and assessing a personal exam
The exam is targeted at one or more specific students (that only the specific student can access). When a personal exam has been created for a student, the system automatically creates an advance registration for the exam on their dashboard and sends a notice on the exam by email. You can add more participants (students) to the exam also after the publishing of the exam. No other students can take the exam. Participants cannot be deleted after the publishing of the exam.
When a student has reserved an exam time, the system shows it in real time. When a student has taken the exam, the examiner will receive a notice by email, and the system shows the exam as waiting for assessment.
Note! The personal exam can only be taken once. As for re-examination, a new exam must be created.
Maturity test: Creating and assessing a maturity test
Use the maturity test exam type when you create a maturity test as an electronic exam. The maturity test form includes the common maturity test writing instructions of the University of Turku. The same maturity test can be targeted at one or more students. You can add new participants to the maturity test also after the publishing of the exam. Participants cannot be deleted after the publishing of the exam.
