Preparing for the June 2020 exam session at UniNE

The June 2020 session will be organized remotely, except for the entry exams at the end of the first year of medicine and the practical part of the sports program. The faculties are responsible for organizing the examinations according to their own rules and principles, and following the guidelines adopted by the rectorate:

Teachers are required to use Moodle to inform all students signed up to their class about the details of any modified exam. According to the Rectorate’s Directive of 9 April 2020 and the Article 2 al. 1 and 2 relating to the June 2020 exam session, faculties are publishing a list of all the exams that have been modified this semester:

Remote assessments: Advices for teachers

The following advices are aimed at anyone responsible for a remote assessment/exam at UniNE. Teachers will make sure that the recommendations of their faculty are met. Regardless of the evaluation method, the grades must be entered into IS-academia before the official deadlines.

1. Written exams on Moodle

Moodle offers two types of written exams (or “activities”). Regardless of the type of exam chosen, it is recommended to submit the Moodle activity in advance to a colleague for testing. The teacher has to make sure that students fill out a pledge of honor before the exam.

Regardless of the type of written exam, once the student has completed and submitted the activity (or the time limit is up), the teacher must download the answers and evaluate them. The file containing the student´s exam answers and the grading annotations must be kept in accordance with the usual rules.

a) "Assignment" activity in Moodle - “Devoir” in French

Continuous evaluations and internal evaluations such as essais or reports are organized using the “Assignment” activity in Moodle (“devoir” in French).

The teacher organizes a password protected ”assignment” activity in Moodle, including necessary instructions, especially about the expected form of the evaluation (report, essay, etc.). Through a Moodle message, the teacher invites students to complete the assignment (devoir in French) within the fixed time limit (the list of students enrolled in the exam is available on Pidex).

b) "Quiz" activity in Moodle - "Test" in French

Multiple choice and open questions exams are organized via the “Quiz” activity in Moodle (test in French). A mock exam facility has been made available by SITEL in order to familiarize teachers and students with this tool.

The teacher organizes a password protected "quiz" activity in Moodle with clearly specifying the time limits. The teacher can also use the possibility to mix questions and do a within group random draw of of questions, in order to minimize cheating.

Before the exam, using a Moodle message (the list of students enrolled in the exam is available on Pidex, the teacher invites students to prepare the quiz, and informs students of its structure. The teacher also makes sure that students have the necessary technology (computer with a webcam, microphone, and a good internet connection; please contact the SITEL hotline if help is needed with this; a form has been sent to all students to apply for a work place during the exam session for those who need it). The teacher is required to give a phone number to the faculty on which she or he is available during the exam.

The day of the exam, it is recommended to organize a Webex or Jitsi session (see the Teach at distance page) before the start of the exam. At the start of the exam, the person in charge gives the password to students via Webex/Jitsi to access the quiz. The person in charge remains available for the duration of the quiz. In case of problems during the exam, contact the hotline that will be organized for the duration of the exam.

2. Oral exams on Webex

Oral exams at distance are organized via videoconference (Webex, see the Teach at distance page). Normally, teachers and students are already familiar with this tool. However, before the exam, it is advised to make a pre-test with a few candidates and using a virtual waiting room (see the user manual for Evaluation orale via Webex, in French).

Before the exam, the teacher programs a Webex session and makes sure that an expert is available. The teacher invites the students via a Moodle message to the Webex session (the list of students enrolled in the exam is available on Pidex, informs them about the organization of the exam and asks them to make sure that they have the necessary technology (computer with a webcam, microphone, and a good internet connection; please contact the SITEL hotline if help is needed with this; a form has been sent to all students to apply for a work place during the exam session for those who need it).

The day of the exam, students are invited to their exam according to the sequence and time frames announced. 

After the exam, the teacher determines the grades, in agreement with the expert.
