Before you choose which service to use

Aalto University offers a variety of options for digital assessment and online examination. However, choosing the right format and method can be a challenge. There are several factors to consider when selecting the best format for student learning, and different exam formats may require different digital tools.

Start by asking yourself:

  1. What are the intended learning outcomes of the student? 
  2. What type of exam are you giving? Is it a quiz with multiple-choice questions, an essay exam, or something else entirely?  
  3. How many students are taking the exam? Is it a small group of 10-20 students, a medium-sized group of 50-100, or a larger group of over 400? 
  4. What kind of exam is it? Will students need to bring course materials, work in groups, or complete the exam within a specific time? 

By considering your specific needs and the features offered by each option, you can select the digital examination format best suited for you and your students.
