Written exams

How does a written exam work in QPS?

Exams in QPS are taken using an iPad provided by the faculty. If the exam includes free-text questions, a keyboard is also used.

When you log in, you enter what is called the exam lobby. You may log in and wait in the lobby until the exam starts. Usually, a password is required to start the exam, and the password is verbally communicated by the exam invigilator at the beginning of the writing time.

Try taking a demo exam (link to Ortrac) to familiarize yourself with the exam view. Scroll to the bottom and choose 'Start demo exam.' For example, during the exam, you can navigate between questions, adjust text size, or use the bookmark function to mark questions you want to review before submitting.

Once you have finished writing the exam, you submit it. If the exam time runs out, your exam will be automatically concluded and submitted.

If you get logged out during the exam, you can simply log in again. Your answers are synchronized and saved automatically.

No, once the exam or an exam part is submitted, you cannot go back and make changes.

The most common practice is that exam results are communicated via email. There may be specific procedures in your program. Check if the email is stuck in your spam/junk folder. If you can't find it, contact the course administration.

If you lose your connection to Internet during the exam, an error message will appear. Continue answering the exam questions and inform the exam invigilator.
