On the following pages you will find information and handouts on planning, preparing and conducting proctored online exams, oral online exams, open-book exams and the Exam.UP exam platform.

With the adaption of the general study and examination regulations at the University of Potsdam (BAMA-O and BAMALA-O) of 06.07.2022, the implementation of digital examinations were made permanent. With the adjustments, the framework conditions for online examinations have been regulated, in particular electronic identity verification and video proctoring for online proctored examinations.

Open-book exams are still possible. It is also still possible to conduct oral video exams.
