A scalable examination platform for BYOD invigilated assessment
All students need to choose to type or hand-write the assessment item (mid semester test/exam):
Those who want to type - see next step! (hand-writers jump to Step 4).
You have three options...
Option 1: Attend one of the e-Exam Practice/laptop set-up sessions (Recommended!).
Note; for those intending on hand-writing their exam you do not need to attend.
All sessions are the same . Pick one! You do not need to attend for the whole duration.
Please bring the laptop you intend on using on exam day, with a fully charged battery. We recommend you also bring a wired mouse.
It is estimated that it will take 30 minutes at most for you to set-up your laptop for automatic boot (excluding any major technical hitches) as well as practice using the e-exam software. There will be DIY guides (see below) and staff will be on hand to help.
Option 2: Borrow a Practice kit from the library:
You can obtain an e-Exam System USB stick and a printed copy of the 'Set-up & Practice Guide' [11MB PDF] booklet on 2 hour loan from:
Gatton Library (ask for it at the loans desk) or
St Lucia Library, Social Science and Humanities branch (Ask for it at the high use loans desk, you may check availability at St Lucia). The practice kit is also available at Herston campus at the Oral Health Centre student services desk. Note; the booklet contains all of the following set-up and practice guide files in one document.
Option 3: Create your own e-Exam Practice USB stick
(recommended only for the technically skilled):
Follow the points below to find which documents you need to read - it all depends on the type of laptop you plan to use:
If you get stuck see the 'Troubleshooting and problem reporting' guide.
Note: if you attended a practice/set-up session you should have been given the survey sheet in the room.
Note: if after filling in the survey you want to change your mind about typing the exam please contact the e-Exam project leader m.hillier[at]uq.edu.au -> change [at] to @.
For those typing their exam - please bring your laptop with a *fully charged* battery and a wired mouse.
For those hand-writing their exam - just bring your pen!
All students - after you finish the exam, please kindly complete a post-exam survey to tell us about your rationale and experience.
The survey will be provided at the conclusion of your exam.
We are now seeking UQ academics interested in trialling the technology and approach in 2015.
If you would like to proceed, please get in touch with Dr Mathew Hillier to arrange a preliminary meeting.
