During the time of remote teaching and learning, exams can be excecuted in MyCourses course workspace, with Quiz (or assignment / Turnitin) activity.
If exam is part of a course and course has MyCourses space, teacher can use MyCourses course workspace and create a quiz or an assignment.
In case there is no workspace for a course, teacher can request an exam workspace:
In the exam workspace, you´ll have a ready made start for a quiz with some instructions. To enroll to the workspace, students need an enrolment key. You get an enrolment key to be shared to students for the exam workspace. Let students know in Oodi when and how they get the enrolment key. Please send an email to your exam students with the workspace link and the enrolment key after examination registration in Oodi is closed or day before examination.
Teachers get the enrolled students list with email addresses from Oodi.

MyCourses Exam via Turnitin assignment - examples
You can use Teams video calls for oral exams in one-to-one sessions. Notice: when proctoring exam with Teams do not record the exam session. Exam recordings are confidential material and they need to be handled with exact protocol. Teacher can take own notes during the exam session.
Teacher should ask permissions for videoconnection in advance and ask if there is anyone who does not have laptop with microphone, webcamera and internet connection available during the exam. We suggest teachers to use Choice tool in MyCourses for asking permission and details, answers will be shown in MyCourses.
Do not record exam sessions, take own notes (=exam diary: when exam starts, when student can leave, when exam ends and notes for possible inappropriate behaviour).
