Introduction to Online Exams

Online exams taking place in 2022/23 in the official University exam diet may be delivered in two different ways:

Remote Online Exam

Most remote online exams, can be accessed from the exam version of your module in My Dundee. These will be named in the format “Exam Module – Module Code – Module Title” and can be found on your Modules page once logged into My Dundee.

For a small number of remote online exams using subject specific software, or for exams taking place outwith the official exam diet (e.g. a CMA, quiz, class test), these can usually be found in the Assessment folder within your teaching module on My Dundee. Your module teaching team should make you aware of where to access your exam.

If you are struggling to find where to access your exam, please contact your module teaching team.

Invigilated Online Exam

Most invigilated online exams will take place in an IT Suite on campus. System specific instructions will be provided on the day of the exam covering how to access and start the exam.

The ExamOnline assessment system may be used for in person, invigilated online exams on campus where a student is required to type answers to short answer or essay style questions that will not be automatically marked. We have a guide that will step you through the process of Taking an ExamOnline Assessment.

The Questionmark assessment system may be used for in person, invigilated online exams on campus where a student is required to answer multiple choice style (automatically marked) or short answer style questions. We have a guide that will step you through the process of Taking an Invigilated Questionmark Assessment.

Other online assessment systems may be used by Schools to deliver invigilated online exams – you should contact your module teaching team for support with these.
