The education of period 1 will be offered online for a large part and where possible back in our buildings (approximately 30%). This also applies to the tests in block 1. As far as possible, these will be tests in the form of open book exams, take home exams, essays or an oral exam. For a small number of courses, the examination will be a knowledge test, which cannot be converted into an alternative test. If the exam cannot take place on location, it will be organized online. For these exams, your course can choose to use remote monitoring as a facility to limit study delay as much as possible.
Does your exam take place on location? There are some house rules in the buildings because of corona.
Remote monitoring can be done in two ways:
- The examiner watches live via your webcam.
- Online Proctoring uses special software that not only watches via the camera, but also stores and analyses the video images for fraud detection. The program used at Utrecht University is a tested and proven system, where privacy is taken into account.
We know this is a tricky situation. This will apply to a small number of tests, which cannot take place on location due to the corona measures or where students cannot come to the location.
