Assessment Continuity Preparation
Information and guidance on moving from exams online.
There are two formats of exams recommended for the December exam diet:
- An open-book exam with a 24 hour window for submission
- An open-book exam scheduled for the same length of time as the original exam, plus an hour's allowance for submission.
Some Schools are using Gradescope to run their exams, there is separate help and guidance for these Schools.
These will allow standard typed submissions but also some courses may require handwritten submissions. Information about how to set these types of exams up is available from the pages below. Our strategy is to keep the assessment format simple - to reduce the stress of students and staff (by using tools that may be familiar) and ensure that the processes are well supported despite the current uncertainty. If you would like to request help, advice or training for your School, please contact us.
