Inspera online assessments

On this page you'll find helpful information about the things you need to prepare or do differently for an Inspera online assessment.

The policy statement for Teaching Delivery, Coursework, Tests and Examinations for Semester 1 and Semester 2 2021 allows all examinations to be designed and conducted as online, non-invigilated, time-limited examinations.

All examinations in 2021 will now take place in the afternoon at 12.30pm, or in the evening at 5pm. 

The rules for an online exam are the same as a paper-based exam, so make sure that you are also familiar with the general Examination Instructions and Regulations which apply.

It’s important that you understand what is expected of you in terms of how you acknowledge and reference sources of information, how you work with other students, and how you should behave when you sit online tests and examinations. For more information, see Academic integrity in online assessment.
