Offline submission

  • We recommend that students always end their exam by handing in their exam via the "Submit" button. If the student experiences network issues when submitting the exam, it can be submitted offline.

    How can student answers be synchronized with after the exam has been completed?

    Students who have completed the exam using a regular web browser or SEB/Take a Test can synchronize any offline data by navigating to the page This must be done on the student's device in the same browser used to take the exam.

    If the student has used our macOS or iOS app, the student can navigate to the page where the exam key is entered. If there is data on the device that has not yet been saved, it will be automatically submitted.

    What happens if the student loses connection during the exam?

    If the student loses connection temporarily during the exam, the student can continue without any problem. Short interruptions are not noticed by either the student or the teacher, as it does not affect the exam at all, and everything is automatically synced when the connection is restored.

    If the interruption persists, a notice is displayed for both the student and the teacher, but the student can continue writing.

    If the internet connection is restored, neither the teacher nor the student needs to do anything as the student's results are automatically saved.

    If the connection does not work when it is time to submit the exam, the student will be informed and suggestions on how to handle the situation will be provided. We will go through the options for offline submission below.



    As an extra security measure, it may be a good idea to take a picture of the student's text with a phone.

    It is possible to submit via a QR code that is scanned with any mobile device, so it does not necessarily have to be the student's mobile phone.
