What is EXAM?

Karelia Univer­sity of Applied Sciences uses EXAM – the elec­tronic exam­i­na­tion system. The aim of the elec­tronic exam­i­na­tion system is to increase flex­i­bil­ity in taking course exams, enhance the quality of studies as well as advance grad­u­a­tion. Taking exams in the elec­tronic exam room may decrease anxiety related to exams.

EXAM is an elec­tronic exam­i­na­tion system in which exams are taken elec­tron­i­cally. There are ten comput­ers in the room, which do not have access to the inter­net. Use of USB-sticks, CDROMs and proof­read­ing is blocked. The EXAM room is super­vised by real time and record­ing video surveil­lance as well as random checks. EXAM enables the students to take course exams and matu­rity exams elec­tron­i­cally. Teach­ers define which exams can be taken elec­tron­i­cally. In addi­tion, the teach­ers define the time constraints of their exams. An exam that will require books, the inter­net or draft­ing paper cannot be taken in EXAM.
