Digital assessment on location
In both Leiden and the Hague rooms are available for digital assessment. These on-campus exams always make use of the faculty’s assessment tool Remindo. On the right you can find an overview of the rooms available for digital exams.
Ask your Coordinator of Studies to make a room reservation. Ask them to reserve a slightly longer time slot than for analogue exams. Take into account the time needed for the start-up, any students who have a right to extra time etc. Technical support on location is only possible during business hours (9-17h).
Below are the three options for digital assessment on location. It is preferable for all exams within a course to use the same assessment option.
In the University Sports Centre, exams are hosted on university Chromebooks. The Chromebooks allow students to only access the assessment software. Invigilators are present to prevent other fraudulent behaviors. Currently a maximum of 936 students can take a test here at the same time. There is no minimum number of students required.
Please note that typing foreign characters is not (yet) possible on the USC Chromebooks.

The PCs in the computer rooms in Lipsius or Wijnhaven are available for digital examination. Students take their exam in full-screen mode, which prohibits them from consulting other website pages. You, as the teacher, are present as invigilator to prevent fraudulent behavior.
Regular rooms are also a viable option for digital exams, namely Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), for which students bring their own laptops. Unless the exam is very short, this does call for a room with enough power sockets. Check out the room overview to see which rooms are suitable.

BYOD exams are especially convenient for exams that call for the use of foreign alphabets and/or characters.
Loan laptops are available to accommodate students without a laptop or technical issues.
Submit your request for a digital exam to ECOLe as soon as the location, date, and time are known.
Always try to book a room listed in the overview. If no rooms are available you can contact ECOLe at firstname.lastname@example.org about hosting it in different room, possibly including the use of powerbanks. This is only facilitated in Leiden and with no more than 90 students total in max. 2 neighboring rooms.
