    Return exams to students via Microsoft Teams

    Once students have submitted their exams, you, as the teacher, can decide when/if the exams should be exported to Microsoft Teams.

    To do this, click the Export button in the Results view and choose Microsoft Teams.


    The exams are not automatically sent to Microsoft Teams upon submission, which means that these exams can also be conducted over multiple lessons if you, as the teacher, wish to do so.

    When you export the exams, you can choose to export them for all students or individual students. You can also choose if you want to return the submission to the students at the same time as you perform the export. Make your selections and then click "Export selected students" at the bottom right.


    Export Question-type-based exams

    If you export question-type-based exams, the scores will be displayed next to the student's name.


    However, if the student's answers still require manual grading, a question mark will appear instead.


    Manage exported exams in Microsoft Teams for Education

    When you export text-based exams, only the student response (or what is written in the writing area) will be sent; the questions will not be included (provided that you, as the teacher, have not included them in the student's writing area).

    The exported task is created as an "Assignment" in Microsoft Teams and can be managed just as you are accustomed to in Microsoft Teams.

    You use Microsoft Teams to comment, grade, provide feedback, and communicate with the students. After exam responses have been exported to Microsoft Teams, there is no synchronization back to, so any comments or similar added to the exam in Microsoft Teams will not appear in

    If it is a text-based exam, it is managed as a Word document, with the possibility to add comments and feedback. If it is an auto-marked exam, it will be displayed as a PDF.

    During marking, it is possible to add comments in Word documents. PDF exams can be marked particularly well in the app on a phone or tablet since you can draw directly on the exam. After saving your corrections, a new file is saved.

    Return assignments to students in Teams

    If you have exported the student answers without returning them to the students, you can either return multiple assignments at once or return them one by one in Teams. You can find more information here:

    New export

    In a situation where you have already exported student responses for an exam once and wish to do this again (for example, after students have resumed the exam and completed their answers on, you need to first remove the assignment in Microsoft Teams.

    You can do this by finding the class assignment and clicking "Delete assignment".


    If you want to export only a single student’s work you can select the student in the assignment, click “Take action in the student view” and then click “Undo hand-in”/“Hand in again” (depending on whether or not you have already returned the exam to the student).


    Important information about re-exporting to Microsoft Teams

    If you export an assignment twice, a new document will be exported to Teams the second time. Any comments written on student texts in Teams will be available in the previous export, which can be found in OneDrive or Sharepoint.
