Conduct an exam

  • Once you have created an exam or have been given a shared exam by a colleague, it's time to conduct it. Below, we have prepared a checklist that you can use during this step.


    Preview the exam as a student before letting the students in, to ensure everything behaves as expected.

    1. Grant access to the exam

    First, students need access to the exam. 

    You can do this in two different ways:

    • Share the exam key
    • Share the link to the exam
      (For example, via Google Classroom)

    You also need to open up the exam for access.

    2. Monitor and conduct the exam

    Through the monitoring view, you have access to everything you need to monitor the exam. You can access it by clicking on the "eye" icon next to the exam in the exam list or by clicking on "Monitoring/Results" in the main menu.

    In this guide, we will go through where to find each function in the monitoring view.
