The education and testing of period 4 will be offered online as much as possible, just as in period 3. As far as possible, these will be tests in the form of open book exams, take home exams, essays or an oral exam. Since 15 June, a small number of exams, which cannot be done online, will take place on location again. There are some house rules in the buildings because of corona. For a small number of courses, the examination will be a knowledge test, which cannot be converted into an alternative test. For these exams, your course can choose to use remote monitoring as a facility to limit study delay as much as possible.
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. We hope you understand that this will apply to a small number of tests. We intend to use online proctoring temporarily, as long as there is no possibility to take the tests at the university itself.
