eKlausur@home - During the exam


What you need to know

During eKlausur@home, you can monitor the test "live" directly in the test module or in the assessment tool. (It is the same view).
You will learn how to do this on this tutorial in step 1.

It is possible to communicate during the exam via the test module (see HelpCard 20-015).

At the end of the test, you must close the test module for learners (see Step 2).

Our video tutorial shows you how to conduct an eKlausur@home in 10 minutes.
Note: In the video, the instructor navigates to the test cockpit via the assessment tool. This is FELIX version 15.4.3, in which "monitoring" directly on the test course element was not yet possible.

Help on frequently asked questions can be found in the Internal link opens in the same window:FAQs in the section "Online exams".
We are also available for support by phone.

What you have to do

  1. We recommend you are available for the students by phone/video conferencing system already 10-15 minutes before the exam starts.

  2. We already have answers to many frequently asked questions in our Internal link opens in the same window:FAQs. However, if you encounter problems that you cannot solve on your own, please feel free to contact Learning Services (hotline 07723 920 1382 or someone from the External link opens in a new window:team directly).

  3. "Live monitoring" directly in the test course element
    (Note: enlarge the images below by clicking on the upper right corner of the image).
    For "Live monitoring", bring up the test course element "eKlausur@home" in the course view below "To exam".
    Click on the "Participants" tab.


    • You can hide unnecessary information displayed in the table. To do this, click the gear icon on the right above the table.

    • At this point you can now view the start time, the progress bar and the termination of a test as well as intervene in case of difficulties (as also shown in Fig. 3.1).

    • View the start time of the exam in the "Start" column (see marker 1 of Fig. 1.1).
      The start time shows when "Start" was clicked without any further action (e.g. saving an answer).
      This allows you to see at a glance whether someone is starting too late and to withdraw the test from this person if necessary (see Helpcard Internal link opens in a new window:2060, step 2).
      Please note: you may have to reload the course element to get an updated view.

    • Track the progress as shown in marker 2 of Fig. 3.1.
      Note: Only when a response has been saved is this saved as progress and as "Last user update".

    • If problems occur in this view, you can also click directly on an examinee (see Fig. 3.1, marker 3).
      In the column "Last change" you can see the timestamp of the last action carried out (saved) by the examinee (see Fig.3.2).

    • Check when individual students have finished their exam (see mark 5 of Fig. 3.1 ).

    • If necessary, also collect tests manually (see marker 6). How to do this is described in step 2 of this Helpcard.

    • The "End date" is either the actual end date or, in the case of tests that have not yet ended, the time calculated on the basis of the set test period. The test is automatically ended at this time.

  4. At the end of the exam:
    Depending on whether the exam period ends at the same time for everyone, or whether individual students have an extended exam period (due to technical problems, due to disadvantage compensation, etc.), you must proceed differently at the end of the exam.
    In both cases you have to - in different procedures - manually collect tests that have not been handed in and block access to the test.

    Case 1 - the exam period has ended for everyone.
    Case 2 - the exam period is extended for individuals.

    • We strongly recommend implementing the following instructions immediately at the end of the exam.
      This is the only way to prevent students from handing in or starting the test later than desired.

  5. Case 1: The examination period has ended for everyone.

    • Check directly on the test module in the "Progress" column whether all students have completed the test (see Fig. 5.1, marker 1).

    • If not all students have finished the test yet, but the exam time has expired for all of them, then collect all tests manually by clicking on the "Pull test" button (above) (see Fig. 5.1, marker 2).

    • You will be asked if you really want to collect all tests. Confirm this.
      Note: If individual students have received a disadvantage compensation, these tests will not be included in this action unless you activate the corresponding option.

    • Block access to the test by activating the option "Locked for learners" in the tab "Access" under Administration > Course editor > "to exam" > "eKlausur@home".

    • Please note: the test is then automatically ended for all examinees regardless of the individual test time set. The course element "to the exam", which contains the test, is then no longer accessible.
      If individual examinees need longer access to the exam, e.g. due to a disadvantage compensation or due to technical problems, then follow the instructions in case 2.

  6. Case 2: The test period is extended for individuals
    If one or more examinees need longer access to the test element (e.g. due to technical problems that have occurred or disadvantage compensation), you must proceed as follows:

    • Check directly on the test element in the "Progress" column whether all students whose time has already expired have completed the test.

    • If not all students for whom the test time has expired have completed the test, then collect those tests individually.

    • Click on the three-dot menu at the end of each row of the examinee whose test you want to collect.

    • Select "Pull running test".

    • The test is collected for the respective examinee. This means: if an examinee wants to perform another action (e.g. save answer or change question), the test is automatically ended and no further changes can be made.

    • After all stragglers have finished the test, block access to the test by activating the option "Blocked for learners" in the tab "Access" under Administration > Course editor > "for exam" > "eKlausur@home".

  7. Immediately afterwards: prevent students from further access to this exam course by resetting the status (above) to "Preparation".

  8. After the exam: please refer to Helpcard Internal link opens in a new window:20-030 for all tips on this (for example, correction, exam viewing, archiving).
