Our services

We want to facilitate electronic assessments at RUB in a controlled and secure environment. The authenticity and integrity of the exams, technical security, compliance with privacy and examination regulations, ease of use, equal opportunity, comparability of the exam conditions and a high quality of exam tasks, questions and activities are our main goals.

We support and advise examinators and students together with the Zentrum für Wissenschaftsdidaktik (ZfW) in all phases of the examination process. Furthermore, we are in charge of the operation of the central e-assessment rooms at the Ruhr University Bochum, exam-related software development and system administration. We are responsible for the technical aspects of the PlagScan portal of RUB, too.

We provide a separate Moodle instance as the examination system in the central e-assessment rooms on campus. The examination system is independent of our central Learning-Management-System (RUB-Moodle) and it is specifically configured for e-assessments.

Digital assessments on campus and remote

We cover the topic of digital assessments together with the Zentrum für Wissenschaftsdidaktik and Dezernat 1. We also share ideas and best practices with the colleagues of other universities. We created a rich portfolio of various support and information offers.

The Moodle course 'elektronische Prüfungen an der RUB' summarizes key information and provides a moderated discussion forum as an additional means of communication.
