It is now clear how the examinations will be shaped during this spring semester at UiA. All students that registered for examinations will receive an email this week – before Easter – with information on how their exams will take place.

“All exams will be moved to digital platforms during this semester. Any exams that originally would have taken place on campus, will now take place online without physical attendance on campus”, says acting Assistant Director of Academic Affairs, Marlene Romme Mørch.
The faculties and the study programme coordinators have been both quick and innovative when they found adequate solutions on how to shape the exams, concludes Mørch.
All exams will take place during this semester – except for one at a Master level at the Faculty of Fine Arts. These students were offered online assessment but preferred to wait until the examination could take place under normal circumstances.
In Studentweb, all changes will be announced on the exams per subject. Here, students can check what is relevant to them. If there are no changes, we have marked this with unchanged – to prevent any misunderstandings. The Exam Office is busy registering all information, and the students will be able to view what is relevant for their exam on Wednesday 8 April.
Furthermore, lecturers are encouraged to communicate information directly to their students in Canvas.
New websites are under construction with user guidelines and explicit instruction on how and to whom students can ask questions before and during the exam. We are working hard to secure adequate support to the students who will take online exams.
“Oral exams will take place online via Zoom or another video tool that the examiner is comfortable with. UiA is preparing a user guideline for Zoom, as this is one of the available tools which many lecturers already have been using during this period with online teaching”, says Mørch.
