Examination tips

New method: Zoom presence

Remote examination with Zoom was developed rapidly in 2020. The method has since been developed to better fit in a digital context in the longer term. The pages on examination with Zoom  have now been updated with a new method called Zoom Presence.

In , the student conducts an exam at any quiet place while the student is available via Zoom for communication with the examiner or on-call teacher. The method can be seen as a form of home exam but where the exam assignments can be combined with meetings, either as a progress meeting or a small oral examination moment.
