The University of Eastern Finland has an electronic exam system which makes it possible for the students to take course exams, literature exams and maturity exams electronically in supervised facilities.
The electronic exam process:
- the teacher creates an electronic exam in the system and defines a period during which it can be taken;
- the student reserves a suitable time for taking the exam;
- the student arrives in the exam room and completes the exam; and
- the teacher evaluates the exam and, when necessary, makes the exam available for re-taking.
The system is suitable for exams that do not contain the same set of questions for all students. The exam system selects a set of questions for each student from the questions entered into the system by the teacher. In other words, the system is not suitable for exams in which a same set of questions is given to all students (general exams).
An exam is available in the system for a certain period of time (or until further notice) during which students can take it when best suited for their own timetables. There is an exam room on all campuses (Joensuu, Kuopio and Savonlinna) and an exam entered into the system can be taken in any of the exam rooms.
The exam room is located in the Joensuu Campus Library, Carelia Building, 2nd floor, room III (Social sciences). The exam room fits six students at a time.
The exam room is located in the Mediteknia building, 1st floor, room 1029. The exam room fits eight students at a time.
The exam room is located in the library, room B116b. The exam room fits four students at a time.
