eClass Exam Digitization Service
Posted by Dave Laurie on 20 March 2020 03:54 PM

UPDATE: The deadline for exam file submission for Winter 2020 digitization is Monday, April 6th at 12:00PM. For terms beyond Winter 2020, instructors can get exams digitized using this information. 

Attention eClass Instructors,

As part of moving course delivery online, IST will be providing an exam digitization service for any instructors who require it and who do not have their exams already converted to a digital format. This service is voluntary and is intended to provide instructors with proactive assistance with digitization in case they require electronic exams.

The exam digitization service will take existing exams in electronic format (MS word .doc or .docx) and convert them into quiz activities on eClass. Instructors who do not have image graphics in their quizzes are encouraged to submit their files in the Aiken text format which will facilitate this process. The converted quizzes will be hidden from students so that instructors can review and validate them and decide whether electronic delivery will meet their needs.

Instructors also have the option to create their 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.

If you have any questions about this, please contact us at
