Schedule an exam using Group ID

If you want to schedule the exam using Group ID you follow the steps 1-2 above and change the start date and start time of the exam. Then choose Group.


To add students to a group, follow this guide.

When you have chosen what group the exam should be scheduled to you then click Schedule exam.


You get a confirmation that the exam has been scheduled and what date, time and to which group. The exam is now being moved from the exam library to the tab Scheduled.


The students connected to the group and class which you have added are the only ones that can start this exam. Make sure that they have logged in with the same student code as you have added in the group. The exam will automatically show up in the DigiExam client when the exam starts for the students in the group.
