Examination in computer rooms now in management

The project to develop examination in computer rooms has now been completed and has been transferred to management. The overall solution is managed by E-learning. If you have questions or feedback about the solution for examination in computer rooms, you can email .

Information about examination in computer rooms

There is information on the intranet about how examinations in computer rooms work and what different roles need to consider.

Ordering of lockdown continues to be made to IT support

If a course is to conduct an examination in a computer room, an administrator orders lockdown by emailing  and including the date, computer rooms and writing time.

Don't forget to cancel lockdown if a room is not to be used

If it turns out that a room will not be needed, we would like you to let us know so that the hall is not locked down. It is better that the computer room can be used for other purposes. Cancellation is easiest to do by answering the same ticket as the order.

Tentafunka orders lockdown for their rooms

For students who have support from Funka, Tentafunka arranges a computer room in most cases. Then Tentafunka books lockdown in the same way as the schools do. On the , it says which codes Tentafunka handles completely themselves and which ones need further coordination between the schools and Tentafunka.

Routine for checking computer rooms

IT support has a list of all examinations that will be conducted in computer rooms. Computer rooms are checked before the examination and IT support will provide feedback to the person who ordered lockdown in a room if there is any major error that will not be able to be fixed before the examination. You don't have to do anything to get a check of the computer room as long as lockdown is ordered.

The routine is new since December 2022 and replaces the one that applied before.

Important to book rooms with a buffer

Even if the computer rooms are checked, it is never possible to guarantee that all computers will work flawlessly at the time of the examination. Therefore, always book rooms so that there are some extra computers available.

Call IT support in case of problems during examination

If problems arise during an examination, it is best to call IT support on 08 790 6600. Be sure to say that it is an ongoing examination. IT support tries to help as soon as possible, but if there are many examinations running at the same time, it may take a little extra time as resources are limited.
