1. Online Exam tool - Introduction

To allow students to take exams during the Covid-19 quarantine a new tool has been created in MMS called the ‘Online Exam’ tool. This tool will provide the following functionality:

  • allow students to access their exam papers at the appropriate time and then submit their exam script within their personal exam allowance – which is based on exam duration and any per student time requirements
  • allow submission of exam scripts to Turnitin
  • provide individual alternative format papers to individual students
  • allow individual and bulk download of exam scripts for marking
  • allow staff to type comments and upload feedback

The Online Exam tool can also be paired with an Exam tool to allow students to select which optional questions they have answered and to allow staff to enter marks directly into the Online Exam tool.

As most Online Exam tools will be configured centrally it is not envisioned that school staff will need to do much in terms of configuration other than link the Online Exam tool with an Exam tool so that marks can be entered
