Exam types

Find out about the different exam types and the formats that will be used for Semester 1, 2020.

What are exam types?

Exam types describe the different ways the exams will be conducted online.

Each exam listed in your exam timetable will be assigned a specific exam type. Each exam type will have slightly different requirements. It is important that you familiarise yourself with the exam type listed for each of your exams so that you are prepared on the day.

Where do I find the exam type for each of my exams?

You can access your individual exam timetable via the my.unimelb homepage. Your individual exam timetable lists the specific exam type for each of your exams. For more information visit the exam dates and timetable page.

What are the different exam types?

  • Strict time limit exams

    This exam type is likely to be the closest to exams you may have sat in exam venues in the past. Unlike past exams that you may have taken, you may be able to use notes, textbooks and other materials in a strict time limit exam. Check your LMS subject site for more information on what materials you may use.

    • Your exam timetable will display a set exam start time (eg 9am) and end time (eg 11am). You will have a set period of time to complete your exam (eg two hours).
    • You will only have access to the exam in the LMS during the scheduled availability time slot.
    • During the exam, you may be asked to complete a quiz, or an assignment. Questions may be multiple choice, short or long answer. See exam formats for more information.
    • If your exam has reading time, this will be listed in your individual exam timetable (eg 15 minutes). Reading time is built into the duration of the exam.
    • At the end of the exam duration, you will submit your exam via the LMS. Please see exam formats for more information on the submission process for your exam.
    • Plan your time carefully so you are ready to submit your exam by the exam end time.
    • Exam submissions can be made up to 30 minutes after the exam end time if required. This is to accommodate for any technical issues that may arise. See exam formats for more information.
    • Your Subject Coordinator will be available for the duration of the exam to respond to exam content questions via the LMS discussion board. If you have general questions or experience issues during your exam, you can call 13 MELB (13 6352 and select Option 1) for further assistance.

Zoom

Zoom is a high-quality video and audio online conferencing tool. In preparation for your Zoom supervised exam, you should review the following guides and information.

You must update Zoom to 5.0 or above to continue using it after Saturday 30 May 2020. Zoom has released upgraded functionality, meaning older versions of the application won’t work after Saturday 30 May 2020. You will need to update Zoom on computers and devices to be able to still use Zoom after this date. View the detailed instructions on how to update Zoom.

  • Setting up your exam space so you are ready to join Zoom
    • Test if your location has a good wifi or wired internet connection. Ask your housemates or family to avoid bandwidth-hungry activities like streaming movies while you’re doing the exam.
  • Check if your internet connection and data plan are adequate for Zoom usage

    Your connection should support a video quality that enables your face to be clearly identifiable.

  • Minimum recommended data allowance for Zoom

    Group Zoom meetings use between 810 MB–2.4 GB of data per hour, depending on the video quality.

    You may reduce data usage by unticking the Enable HD option in video settings.

    Most laptops will be in the midrange and will use about 1.4 GB of data per hour. Please ensure you have sufficient data to complete your exam.

    If you are worried that your internet connection or data plan won’t be able to support a Zoom exam, please refer to our support services.

  • Set up Zoom for identity verification

    It is important that your webcam is set up with optimal lighting so that exam supervisors can clearly see your face throughout a Zoom ID verified exam. The reasons for this are to:

    • Verify your identity as would normally be done in a regular exam.
    • Verify that you were present and abided by the examinations policy during the exam.

    If you are using a laptop or PC with a built-in webcam:

    • Ensure that you are seated in front of the webcam. Check in Zoom if your face is clearly visible.

    If you are using your tablet or smartphone to enter the Zoom room:

    • Ensure that you position your device so your face is clearly in view. Check in Zoom if your face is clearly visible.

    Do not use your webcam to broadcast your exam workings or the LMS screen.

    You will not be permitted to use images as a Zoom background during the exam.

    Here is a good example of a Zoom setup. This has optimal lighting and the face is clearly identifiable. Make sure your Zoom setup looks like this.

    Here is a bad example of a Zoom setup. This has poor lighting and the face is not identifiable. Make sure your Zoom setup does not look like this.
