Teacher stories - How I replaced one proctored campus exam with a home exam

Presenter: Viggo Kann (Professor / Director of Studies), 2020-10-29. This webinar was held in Swedish.

This webinar describes how quizzes and master's tests, with written and oral presentation, can successfully replace proctored campus exams, even in courses with large student groups. Both the theory part and the problem solving part of the exam in the course Algorithms, data structures and complexity have been replaced by another examination: a peer-reviewed theory quiz and two individual master's tests. The course is compulsory for the third year students of the computer science program with over 200 registered students. The examination form has been developed over many years and did not take place on campus to any extent during the autumn of 2020. The assessment is made according to carefully specified assessment criteria and the examination is fitted into the course to help the students learn as much as possible.
