Overview of the most important facts:
- The examinations are designed in such a way that auxiliaries are generally permitted (Open Book).
- Thus consist of open questions in which, for example, the focus is on argumentation and answers cannot simply be looked up online or in auxillaries.
Tasks may be randomised with exchangeable questions if they are comparable in terms of difficulty and weighting in the examination. For example, values can be varied in calculations, multiple-choice options can be exchanged or comparable tasks within a topic can be exchanged.
- This form of examination is regarded as a substitute for the presence examination (i.e. a simultaneous presence examination on site at the university does not have to be offered to the students as an additional option).
- Examinees are required to submit a declaration of authenticity. Submitted work can be checked by plagiarism checkers.
All regulations concerning Open Book examinations can be found at Department II
- The use of the Exam Moodle is recommended for this kind of exams.
