The MU Crisis Board recommends holding traditional in-person examinations or other presence forms of teaching for the entire spring semester 2020 only in cases of absolute necessity. Even in situations where legal regulations allow examination or teaching in-person, but the examination or teaching can also be carried out remotely, the MU Crisis Board recommends choosing a distance solution for the entire spring semester, including the examination period.
The transition to remote forms of exams brings a lot of new challenges to teachers. On the one hand, they often have to change the content of the exams from factual to the so-called "open book" or, for the first time, they have to get acquainted with a new tool, such as MS Teams. On the other hand, there is a concern that by switching to distance exams, students may easily share test assignments and answers or commit fraud.
If the teacher wants to find out whether the student has met the objectives of the course and gained the experience and skills, he must involve wit, improvise and partially resign from the ways he was used to so far.
