Examination will continue to take place primarily with forms of examination other than written monitored campus examination (final or partial exams). Based on proven experience and to increase the diversity of examination forms, the First and Second Cycle Education Committee recommends that oral examination or digital unproctored examinations be used to a greater extent. Furthermore, continuous examination is encouraged.

To select and design the implementation
Different forms of examination place different demands on how the tasks or questions are designed and sometimes also how the assessment is carried out. When reorganizing the examination, it is therefore good to initially go back to the learning objectives, to ask what the students actually should be able to do after completing the course.
Systems for digital examination
The Committee of First and Second Cycle Education (Grundutbildningsutskottet) has decided that the following systems should be used for remote examination:
- Canvas - for quizzes and handing in material
- Möbius - for more advanced quizzes (recommended only when the tool has already been used during the course)
- Zoom - for oral examination and examination with digital presence in Zoom
Use examination rooms
Digital examination with registration in Ladok must be conducted in examination rooms in Canvas, not in course rooms in Canvas.
