Assessment

An digital test is an e-assessment. Both summative and formative tests can be made into electronic exams to be taken online.


Experience

Software Remindo

Exam Hall (in Dutch)

EXAM HALL

  • Educatorium: in the exam halls Gamma, Bèta and Alfa there is space for  650 students. All the 650 students can make a digital test at the same time on Chromebooks with a secure WiFi network.
  • USG: on this location you can test digital with 40 students. This is useful for small groups.
  • Law and U.S.E.: eventually there will be 40 Chromebooks available on each location.

ROADMAP DIGITAL TESTING

PREPARATION
1. The teacher applies for a digital assesment:

· The teacher informs the person responsible for the schedules that he/she will be setting a digital exam (to ensure that the appropriate hall will be booked including Chromebooks and digital exam supervisors), and;
· The teacher informs the digital examination coordinator (Caro Bliekendaal, c.g.h.bliekendaal@uu.nl) that he/she will be setting a digital exam

2.The teacher receives information about digital exams:

First digital exam:
· The teacher attends the information meeting about digital exams; this is followed by an invitation from the key user (Roel Werelds, R.Werelds@uu.nl)for an instruction session, or;
· The digital exam coordinator invites the teacher for an instruction session by both the key user and the digital exam coordinator

Subsequent digital exams:
· The teacher attends a short instruction session by the key user

3. The teacher and the key user divide the various tasks, e.g.:

The teacher:
· enters the exam questions in Remindo (REBO Educate-it can provide support);
· creates the exam in Remindo (deadline: 10 days before the exam date);
· organises (teaching) supervisors;
· informs the person responsible for the schedules no later than two weeks before the exam date about the definitive number of students (in view of the number of Chromebooks and digital exam supervisors required).

Keyuser:
· links the students to the exams;
· checks the exam;
· checks whether the number of students in mail from UU corresponds with the actual number of students;
· creates ‘correction sessions’ for the benefit of the exam exams.

TEST DAY
4. The digital exam supervisors prepare the booked exam hall

· put ready the Chromebooks etc.

5. The students sit the exam

· the digital exam supervisors are available to prevent disturbances etc.; during the teacher’s first digital exam the key user will be present too.

6. The digital exam supervisors clear up the exam hall

AFTERWARDS
7. The teacher (digitally) revises the exams, Remindo provides the results

8. The teacher plans a timeslot for the students to inspect their assessed exams (if digital: after first having consulted the key user)
