Digitalization of examination is a natural development within the higher education sector.
A number of measures related to the development of innovative teaching, learning and assessment has been initiated under NTNU Teaching Excellence.
One of these initiatives is the project "Digital examinations" which was initiated in June 2015.
NTNU is annually carrying out around 220,000 exams. The project has carried out a study in spring 2015 of what a digitalizing of these examinations would entail, and with this as a backdrop laid a plan for NTNU to develop good practices and dissemination of digitalization in this field.
The project has chosen to take small quality-assured step rather than to invest in large volume of completions.
The exam process is one of the most critical processes at our university, and there is no room for error situations when thousands of students are to be examined.
