Online Exams

If attendance exams cannot be taken during the digital summer semester, the new regulations for the framework examination regulations (RPO) came into force on 25th April 2020, which regulate which alternative online formats are possible for taking exams. You will find the corresponding annexes to the RPO in Gazette No. 48/20, 49/20 and 50/20 of 24th April 2020 under point 3.1.

The Teaching Service and Student Service have also put together a handout containing further information to assist teachers in the selection, development/testing, implementation and documentation of alternative examination formats (online exams):

Information on planning and conducting online exams can be found here.

Software for online exams: EvaExam and Moodle

If you want to develop and conduct your online exam with exam software, we recommend EvaExam or Moodle. Especially if you have not yet worked with Moodle (in this case with the activities Tests or Quizzes) or with EvaExam (e.g. for scoring exams), you should have enough time and interest to familiarize yourself with the corresponding software in advance. The teaching service will be happy to support you. Just send us an email to: digi-support@leuphana.de.

Even if you must allow some time for preparation and testing for online exams with EvaExam or Moodle, this is worthwhile in the long run. On the one hand, it can be expected that options for online exams will be created in the future as well. On the other hand, both software solutions with the same functionalities can also be used in the future, e.g. to create exam sheets that are later automatically evaluated by scanning (EvaExam) or to carry out smaller quizzes and tests in the context of courses, e.g. for exam preparation with students (Moodle and EvaExam).

The following links will give you a first impression of online exams with Moodle or EvaExam:

More information and instructions are available on the Moodle and EvaExam subpages.

Access to the software: If you decide to take an online exam with Moodle or EvaExam, please contact the teaching service at digi-support@leuphana.de, who will set up the appropriate access to the software for you.
