Examinations at RWTH Aachen University can also be conducted as online remote examinations in the summer semester 2021. For better capacity planning, teachers are requested to apply for their preferred remote examination platform in RWTHonline by 30.06.2021. This must also be done if the examinations initially continue to be scheduled in presence.

As in the winter semester 2020/21, the Dynexite and temp-Moodle platforms are available for conducting the exams. These can now be booked as resources in RWTHonline for the respective exam. “Dynexite and temp-Moodle" and "temp-Moodle" are available for selection as resources. Instructions on how to do this can be found in the RWTHonline documentation. The temp-Moodle exam room is additionally created in combination with Dynexite so that the information (e.g. the zoom link) can be distributed to the examinees. For exams that will take place purely via temp-Moodle, teachers will receive a confirmation from 01.07.2021. To avoid overloading the system, this may involve adjustments in individual cases (delayed start, cohorting, etc.).

For online remote exams administered via Dynexite, the Center for Teaching and Learning Services (CLS) staff will approach the respective examiners directly. Since, due to the volume of exams, not all exams can be administered by CLS, adjustments may be made in individual cases.

IT Center and CLS recommend the change to Dynexite and are happy to support you in this process.

Information and instructions on temp-Moodle can be found on IT Center Help.

Information and instructions on remote testing in general are provided by CLS on its website.
