Campus exams in native software

One of the services supported by the UT is exams in native software. At our digital exam locations, a virtual pc is made available for each student on the chromebooks. This virtual pc, through Microsoft Azure, contains an image with a Windows desktop and applications such as SPSS, Matlab, Excel, etc.

Students receive their exam questions and any documentation through exam application Remindo. Specific web pages can be whitelisted if needed. Students are unable to visit any other websites or communicate with each other through these virtual pcs, as the environment is strictly limited to whitelisted content only. An exam share is available to store content for the exam, and results can be uploaded through Remindo. The exam office can explain the best options for each examination type.  

The process from a student point of view is demonstrated in this software exam video:

If you are interested in more information about possibilities for scheduling a software exam, please contact e-assessment@utwente.nl. Please note that you will need to request a software exam at least six weeks in advance of the exam date, to allow for enough preparation by the exam office and LISA.

If you are interested in a software exam using software that is not on an existing image, please contact e-assessment@utwente.nl as soon as possible. There are restrictions to the number and type of new images that can be built by LISA.
