Examiner's role at exams with Zoom presence
On this page, the examiner's role and responsibilities during an exam with Zoom presence is described.
If you want to schedule a single Zoom session for an exam with Zoom presence that you are responsible for, and also participate in, you can follow the same instructions as for the Zoom responsible person . Please note that you cannot start and be "host" for several Zoom sessions in parallell, there needs to be one meeting host for each Zoom session, see under instructions for the Zoom responsible person.
Before the exam
Contact and consult with the exam administration for information regarding meeting hosts, Zoom responsible person, and the number of registered examinees.
Inform the students about the format of the exam. See information to communicate to the students. .

Recommended: create an exercise assignment in Canvas for the students
If the students encounter technical issues during an exam where they are supposed to submit their scanned answers to Canvas you will need an alternative place for submission. Prepare a Box folder by following these instructions: Create a Box folder for submissions.pdf .
During the exam
- Be available during the exam, for example via sms, email and through fixed times for checking in on the various Zoom sessions.
- Conduct individual meetings with the students. See more information under the heading "Meeting in the breakout room" on the page Examination with Zoom presence .
During the exam, contact is made with students in breakout rooms for, for example:
- ID control
- questions from students
- teacher's/examiner's checking of the students' ongoing work
Meeting hosts then create a breakout room in the Zoom session and moves the examiner and examinee there. There, the examiner and student can talk undisturbed and then return to the main session. The video describes how this is done.
