Digital examination formats during the Corona crisis.

For reasons of infection control, there have been restrictions on the holding of teaching and examination events since 17th March 2020.

In order to compensate for disadvantages resulting from this for students, additional options for the computer-supported execution of examinations have been created for the duration of the Corona pandemic via the "Statutes of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) for the Supplementation of the Study and Examination Regulations, the Admission and Matriculation Regulations and Individual Selection and Access Regulations for the Duration of the Corona Pandemic". These were additionally extended with the amendment statutes - link follows - in February 2021.

An overview for examiners on the options as well as the regulations to be observed in the examination period of the winter semester 20/21 is given in the handout updated in February 2021 - link follows - (Old version: "Handbook for the Implementation of Success Controls Avoiding Meetings at KIT during the Corona Crisis").

Concrete procedures have been worked out for the implementation of the Open Book scenarios "upload retreat" and "online retreat" outlined in the handout as well as the scenario "upload retreat under video supervision". For these, you will find further information on the respective subpages.

All materials can be found in ILIAS under Magazine > Examinations > Materials for Examiners.
