Specific instructions and guidelines for students

 

Return to “Guidelines for the correct development of remote assessment exercises”


Digital tool: “PRADO EXAMEN” Assessment Platform
Modality: Synchronous


A) Before the exercise

1) Once students have been notified of the assessment session (convocatoria), they must report any technical limitations or circumstances that may prevent them from undertaking the exercises on the scheduled date and time, under the conditions established in the examination announcement, to teaching staff.

B) During the exercise

1) Connection. Students must access the “PRADO EXAMEN” Assessment Platform, using their personal authentication code, 10 minutes before the start time indicated in the examination announcement for the question paper.

2) Starting the question paper. Students will access the question paper and see a countdown timer indicating the exact moment when they can start the exercise.

3) Communicating with teaching staff. To send queries related to the question paper to teaching staff, students must use the communication channel established in the examination announcement (for example, a UGR email account, Google Meet, Google Chat, etc.).

Whenever a videoconference system is used as a communication and monitoring channel for an assessment exercise, the following additional instructions shall be taken into account:

  • Students must access the corresponding Google Meet classroom indicated in the examination announcement 10 minutes before the start time of the exam/test. To do so, they must use their “go.ugr.es” account.
  • Teaching staff may ask students to accredit their identity by showing their Spanish National Identity Card, or any other valid identity document accepted by the University of Granada, on camera.
  • To avoid having any images linked to their private life captured, students should avoid showing their domestic environment while undertaking the exercises.
  • It is forbidden to record the session.

4) Technical issues during the exercise. If technical connection issues arise during the exercise, students must try to complete as much of the exercise as possible. It is recommended that students take screenshots of the issues and report them to teaching staff so that they can subsequently verify them.

5) With regard to exercises conducted via videoconference systems, it is forbidden to capture and/or to record, reproduce or disseminate part or all the content of the session, by any means or device. Any unauthorized act will constitute a violation of the applicable regulations, and as such may result in legal liability.

C) Completion of the exercise

1) Students must send the question paper.

2) Requesting a new assessment exercise due to technical issues: As soon as possible, affected students must write a report explaining the technical issues they have experienced during the exercise and send it to the teaching staff responsible for the course.

D) Marks will be published on the Platform for Teaching Support Resources (PRADO)

E) Exam reviews

Students must use the communication channel indicated by teaching staff.


Digital tool: Google Meet
Modality: Synchronous


A) Before the exercise

1) Once students have been notified of the assessment session (convocatoria), they must report any technical limitations or circumstances that may prevent them from undertaking the exercises on the scheduled date and time, under the conditions established in the examination announcement, to teaching staff.

B) During the exercise

1) Connection. Students must access the corresponding Google Meet classroom 10 minutes before the exercise and wait for their interview (indicated in the examination announcement). To do so, students must use their “go.ugr.es” account and switch on their camera and microphone.

2) Starting the exercise. When using two classrooms, teaching staff will inform the students in the waiting room when it is their turn to start the exercise. To do so, they can send the link to the Google Meet classroom to the chat and name the student(s) who must access it.

3) Starting the recording. Teaching staff will start recording the Google Meet session in which the students are being tested. Before starting the recording, teaching staff must read the following conditions, in line with the Instruction of 20 April 2020 from the University of Granada's Secretary's Office on the application of data protection regulations in the use of digital tools:

You are hereby notified of the conditions of use of the videoconference application which is about to be used:

  • The session is going to be recorded in order to guarantee students’ rights and teaching staff’s obligation to retain records under University of Granada Assessment Policy and Regulations.
  • Both the microphone and the camera must be switched on.
  • It is forbidden to capture and/or to record, reproduce or disseminate part or all the content of the session, by any means or device. Any unauthorized act will constitute a violation of the applicable regulations, and as such may result in legal liability.”

4) Development of the exercise. Students may be required to accredit their identity by showing their Spanish National Identity Card or any other valid identity document accepted by the University of Granada. If students need to give a presentation, they can share their screen to show their work or to carry out tasks requested by teaching staff.

5) Technical issues during the exercise. If a technical issue affects the student’s connection and prevents them from completing the exercise, they must write a detailed report to inform the teaching staff about the issue. If possible, they should provide evidence of the technical issues (screenshots, for example). Teaching staff will register these issues to assess them and decide whether or not to schedule a new assessment exercise or, alternatively, to deem the sections of the exercise completed by the student up until the occurrence of the technical issue as sufficient for the purposes of assessment.

C) Completion of the exercise

1) Requesting a new assessment exercise due to technical issues. As soon as possible, affected students must write a report explaining the technical issues they have experienced during the exercise and send it to the teaching staff responsible for the course.

D) Marks will be published on PRADO

E) Exam reviews

Students must use the communication channel indicated by teaching staff. Teaching staff must retain the evidence of the exam/test (the recording on Google Drive from their “go.ugr.es” account) for the period established in the university regulations (until the end of the following academic year).
