On-campus testing

As for the time being, unfortunately we still have to take all the coronary measures into account, we prepared some rules for on-campus testing.

The rules in short (the extended version can be found further down the page):

  • In case your test takes place on campus, you are not allowed to do it online.
    Exceptions:
    • students in quarantaine
    • students studying from abroad
    • students who are seriously concerned about their health
    • students belonging to a high-risk group
    • students who live together with people belonging to a high-risk group

    Please inform the course coordinator as well as your Study Advisor no later than 5 working days before the scheduled test that you are unable to take a test on location. If you suddenly need to be quarantined just before the test, please let us know as soon as possible. You will then be given an alternative test online. This test will be taken no later than the course's regular repair test, leaving you with 2 test opportunities. If you prefer not to give a reason to your course coordinator, you may also ask your Study Advisor to pass on that you are eligible for alternative assessment. Your Study Advisor will not disclose any personal information about you to third parties.

  • If you are unable to take a test due to illness or force majeure, you can unsubscribe via the test unsubscribe form.

If you did not deregister for the test on time or you sent in a deregistration request that doesnot match the reasons mentioned above, you might not be able to resit your exam in the current block.

Measures taken during online testing

In order to reduce the risk of fraud, the course coordinator may take measures when an online test is being offered, such as:

  • online proctoring or a similar form of online monitoring while taking the test
  • oral
  • holding an individual video call after the test on the test's subject

More information

  1. If one or more tests of a course are planned on campus, students are required to participate on campus.
  2. An exception is made for students studying abroad, students who are very concerned about their health or who belong to a high-risk group for Covid-19, or students living together with housemates who belong to a high-risk group. They will report this, with a brief explanation, as soon as possible, and at the latest five working days before the test in question takes place, to the course coordinator and the study advisor. If they have made these reports correctly and on time, they are entitled to an alternative test online, which takes place at the latest at the time of the regular resit of the course.
  3. Students who, due to illness (Covid-19 or otherwise) or force majeure (whether or not related to Covid-19, such as local lockdown or transport restrictions) cannot take part in a test, will make use of the regular resit rules. The student's individual test moment will be postponed and the student will still have a repair option.
  4. Students who are told within five working days before the test that they need to be quarantined are advised to contact the lecturer as soon as possible. The lecturer will then explore whether and, if so, what possibilities there are for taking the test after all. It may be possible to join an online equivalent of the test or a regular repair test, to take an individual oral test, or to provide other customisation. Do not take any risks and adhere to the quarantine regulations.
  5. Students who, for reasons other than those mentioned under 2 and 3, do not take part in a planned test on campus, or who have not reported to the course coordinator and the study advisor with a reasoned explanation in time in the case of 2, must take into account the possibility that they will be offered a replacement test only after the block of study in which the course takes place. In that case, the replacement test must be offered before the end of the current academic year.
  6. In all cases where an online alternative to a regular test on campus is offered, the course coordinator may take measures to reduce the risk of fraud, for example:
    • online proctoring or other similar but less onerous measures of online supervision during the taking of the online examination
    • oral examination
    • after the test, have an individual video conversation about the subject of the test, on the basis of which the 'not satisfied' verdict can be given, which verdict replaces the grade of the test
