eClass Exam Digitization Service

Article Last Updated May 2020

Instructors who are moving assessments online and who do not have their exams already converted to a digital format can utilize this service speed up the creation of electronic exams. This service is intended to provide instructors with a starting point for moving exams online, but instructors are ultimately responsible for question validation and exam delivery.

The exam digitization service takes existing exams or quizzes in electronic format (MS word .doc or .docx) and converts them into quiz activities on eClass. The converted quizzes will be hidden from students so that instructors can review the questions and configure them correctly for electronic delivery. Note that the service can also be used to create a question bank from existing questions that can be used in a range of quiz delivery options from homework style right up to full exams.

Instructors also have the option to create their own online exams using our guide for creating quizzes. Information on the basic mechanisms for importing and uploading files into the course question bank is also available.

Please note that online exams may not be required so instructors should follow any department, faculty, or central academic directives on assessment and should also consult the Centre for Teaching and Learning’s guidelines for online assessment.

To submit an exam for digitization, please complete this form.
