Examination: electronic examination (e-exam) using laptop - bring your own device (BYOD)
The examination format for this unit in this term (Term 1, 2017) will be electronic examination (e-exam) which means you have to use a laptop computer to complete the examination. You have to bring your own laptop for the examination. Prior to using the laptop for the examination, you have to pre-configure and test the laptop to pre-qualify it to use in the examination. Detailed pre-qualification and test procedures will be given in the Moodle unit website. As e-exam is the only option, you have to apply for special consideration with applicable reason to be exempt from taking an e-exam.
This information is given to you in advance so that you can organise a laptop for using in the examination. You will also be given a practice e-exam to ensure that you can use your laptop to complete your examination. Detailed instructions for setting up your practice e-exam USB will be given in the Moodle unit website.
Please note the following points to decide the suitability of a laptop.
A suitable Laptop will need to have one or more standard USB ports (Type A - rectangle plug). This covers the vast majority of recent laptops from Dell, HP etc. and previous generation Apple laptops, e.g. MacBook Air, previous generation MacBook Pros where these have standard USB Type A ports.
Laptops listed below don't work with the current e-exam system:
· Laptops that only have the new 'USB-C' ports (the small rounded plug).
· Latest Apple Laptops (MacBook 12 inch)
· Late 2016 MacBook Pro series due to only having USB-C.
· Lenovo 100s (a small net-book).
· Microsoft surface pro/book.
· Any 'Chrome' books (i.e. those using Google's Chrome OS).
