On these pages, there are examples and recommendations for how different examinations, which are intended to be carried out without supervision and in a place of the student's choice, can be designed and developed.
A home exam is a form of examination where the student is given one or more assignments to complete. A home exam can last for several days or a shorter period of time (hours). The examination is carried out without supervision. The examination assignment should be designed based on the fact that the student has access to course literature, materials, communication with classmates, etc. On the home exam page, you can read about what is good to think about in order to create a pedagogical task for any place that counteracts cheating.
An examination portfolio contains a collection of student achievements that the student completes to demonstrate the intended learning outcomes of a course. The content of the portfolio may vary in terms of content, work process, and the students' influence in the selection. This page provides information on recommended content as well as examples regarding presentation of the examination portfolio.
Design written assignments
When students have free access to other sources of information, as in a home exam, extra thought is required for the examination to be conducted with high validity and reliability. On this page are recommendations to keep in mind when designing assignments for examination, with a focus on counteracting cheating.
