Testing and examinations take place both online and on location. The scheduling will be centrally managed in order to monitor the frameworks of the protocols. Collaboration will take place when institutes/study programmes both make use of one location to create the best possible schedule.
In these times of online education and online assessments, it is important to the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences to safeguard the quality and the level of our diploma. We will monitor that the consequences of the Corona measures do not negatively affect our education. Now that we will temporarily continue as RUAS Online, it is important to make sound decisions about any changes in our approach to assessments. Guidelines and advice from RUAS for online assessments are available here in this document.
Learning from home goes hand in hand with assessment from home. This creates limitations, but certainly also opportunities. The Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences has published an online magazine that offers tools for digital testing. For example, there is an overview page about changes in types of assessment, guidelines and tips for each type of assessment. The magazine was created in a very short period of time. We are continuously working on completing the magazine. For questions about remote testing you can contact a special help-desk.
Online proctoring - the administering of assessments with digital supervision - is not allowed at the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences; there a few exceptions. It is a complex subject of which we are currently investigating the implications, which includes some experimenting with proctoring. The state of affairs regarding proctoring is described in this memorandum
Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences has the in-house expertise available with regard to online assessments. But we could use some extra support. Everyone who has experience with the execution of online assessments and who is willing to help colleagues online with the available tools, can report to the helpdesk. We appreciate being able to make use of your expertise.
