If you have online examinations, you have several options available. Option 1 is the standard online exam choice, however, if you have professional body requirements, you are able to choose Option 2 or 3.
Option 1 - Standard examination (written or multiple choice). Students will have 24 hours to complete and submit their examination. The PDF exam paper (and any additional materials) will be attached to a Turnitin assignment, which will be available to students from the start time of the exam, and which will close 24 hours later. Students will submit one document via Turnitin, which will be checked for plagiarism etc.
Option 2 - Time-limited written examination. Students will have 24 hours to start their examination. When the student clicks to start the exam, this will also start a timer running. Students will have to complete and submit their exam before the time expires. Students will submit one document for each question they answer - these will be checked through Turnitin for plagiarism etc. Due to the time taken to set this option up, it is only available for modules with a PSRB requirement for the exam to be time-limited. Check with your Programme Lead if you are not sure if this applies to your module.
Option 3 - Time-limited multiple choice examination. Students will have 24 hours to start their examination. When the student clicks to start the exam, this will also start a timer running. Students will have to complete and submit their exam before the time expires. The exam will be automatically marked, based on information provided by the Module Leader about correct answers, negative marking etc. Due to the time taken to set this option up, it is only available for modules with a PSRB requirement for the exam to be time-limited. Check with your Programme Lead if you are not sure if this applies to your module.
