KTH Digicertus Exam, information for spring 2023

Published Jan 25, 2023

The solution for examinations in computer rooms with locked computers has been named KTH Digicertus Exam. Lockdown orders are still made via email to IT support, but will be handled by the Education Office (EDO) in the future. Each exam period during the spring semester 2023 has a final day for when the lockdown order must be made.

More information

The intranet contains information about the KTH Digicertus Exam and what different roles need to consider in the implementation.

KTH Digicertus Exam is the name of the solution for examination in a computer room

During the academic year 2021/2022, a project was conducted to develop and introduce an examination environment for locked-down examination in computer rooms. The result of the project is now in long-term management. The E-learning management object has coordinating responsibility, but the solution is delivered by several parts of KTH. The solution includes the following:

  • Pedagogical support and coaching on the implementation of examinations in computer rooms.
  • Collaboration on administrative routines regarding examination in computer rooms.
  • Handling orders for lockdown of computer rooms.
  • Checking of computer rooms before examination.
  • Configuration of Safe Exam Browser (SEB).
  • Automatic start-up and shutdown of SEB.
  • Technical support.

Lockdown orders are still made to IT support but are handled by EDO

New for 2023 is that lockdown orders are handled by the Education Office (EDO). This starts to apply before exam period 3. Orders should still be sent to , so for those who order lockdown, there will be no difference except that it is another person who answers your order cases.

Final day to order lockdown before each exam period

During the spring semester 2023, we will introduce a final day for when lockdown must be ordered for each exam period. This is done in order to better plan staffing.

Period spring 2023 Final day to order
Exam period 3, 10-17 March 6 March
Re-exam period 2, 11-14 April 3 April
Exam period 4, 29 May to 5 June 22 May
Re-exam period 3, 7-9 June 31 May
Re-exam period 4, 14-26 August 7 August

Order lockdown even if the details are not clear

Even if not all the details of an examination are ready before the final day for ordering, it is possible to send an order and note that more information will come. Just be sure to update the order if something changes.
