Digital Examinations: Latest Information from the Dean's Office


Dear Students,

In light of the current pandemic situation, the teaching staff of the School of Business and Economics have decided that all examinations will be conducted in a digital format (i.e. as remote examinations). This decision applies to both the first-date examination period and the second-date examination period in the winter semester 2021/22. In good time prior to the first-date examination period, detailed information about the actual procedure involved in taking a remote examination will, of course, be made available to students in the respective Moodle course rooms.

It is extremely important that you observe all of the following points in the time leading up to your remote examinations:

  • Check your emails with the ending at regular intervals.
  • Check the Moodle course rooms at regular intervals for any new information on an examination and read it through carefully and completely.
  • Ensure that you have a working camera and microphone as well as a powerful and stable internet connection.
  • Any questions about the actual procedure involved will be answered via the respective Moodle course rooms.
  • Instructions for taking an examination as well as for the identity validation process will be made available to you via the Moodle course rooms, presumably by mid-January.
  • All data collected in this respect will, of course, be treated confidentially in full compliance with data protection regulations and with the sole purpose of conducting the examination. The data will be deleted in due time.
  • All information provided here is valid only for those modules offered by the School of Business and Economics. The information applies for all students taking our modules, even those students who are not assigned to our School, e.g. prospective industrial engineers (Wirtschaftsingenieure).
  • Please appreciate that further information about the procedure for the digital examinations will be successively uploaded until mid/end January and updated where necessary.

A very important note: We will classify any attempts to cheat, e.g. if a person takes somebody else's examination for them, as a serious matter. In any attempts of this kind, we will seek to have the students involved exmatriculated.

We would like to wish you every success with your preparations for your upcoming examinations.

Best wishes and kind regards,

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Christian Grund (Dean of the School of Business and Economics)
Univ.-Prof. Dr. Britta Peis (Dean of Studies at the School of Business and Economics)
