Assessments and practical classes can be held on location from 15 June onwards

The easing of the government's corona measures means that from 15 June onwards, assessments and practical classes can be held in university buildings. Your lecturers will let you know via Blackboard or Brightspace if this will result in any changes for you. Read more about the easing of the corona measures.  

Notification of upcoming assessments

To ensure you have time to revise, your study programme will notify you about each assessment moment at least five working days in advance. This is of course the minimum notification period. We have asked lecturers to make sure you have sufficient time to prepare for assessments. This applies to all forms of assessment. If you are unable to take part in an assessment, for example if you are ill, please notify your study adviser and we will work together to find a solution.

Forms of online assessment

To prevent students falling behind in their studies, assessment will take place online whenever possible. Online assessments will take various forms and utilise different tools.

Your lecturer will first determine whether options such as open book exams, oral exams or essays can be used. Tools such as Kaltura, Brightspace, Blackboard, ANS and Remindo may be employed. However, if these options and tools are not suitable, your lecturer may choose to use online proctoring.

Online proctoring
Online proctoring basically means that your exam will be invigilated via your webcam. There have been concerns expressed in the media about the privacy implications of this tool. However please be assured that your privacy is of the utmost importance to the university and clear agreements have been made concerning what happens to your data, who can access it and how long it is stored. See the privacy statement.

Notification of assessment type
You will be notified about the form of your online assessment well in advance. For students taking exams with online proctoring there is a privacy statementonline manual and FAQs available. If you have any questions, contact your lecturer.
