Exam preparation resources

Course coordinators are encouraged to promote the Library’s exam workshops offered in Weeks 10–13 (Preparing for your online exam and Preparing for your online invigilated exam) to prepare students for their online exams and assist them in avoiding common issues.

Practice online exams

Where a course will require students to sit a Learn.UQ-based online exam at the end of semester, course coordinators are strongly encouraged to provide students with a practice exam. Practice exams set students up for exam success by allowing them to become familiar with the exam process and test the set-up of their device. Course coordinators can either generate a course-specific practice exam, or simply promote the availability of the self-enrol Learn.UQ Practice Exam site.

Online exam resources

Course coordinators are encouraged to share instructional guides with their students on how to complete Learn.UQ exams. Slides are also available on exam timing, tips and technology processes for course coordinators to use in exam information sessions with students.
