Note: Digiexam does not yet fully support the ability to write exams over time. We don’t recommend grading until the exam is finished, otherwise, your grading work for a student that enters the same exam again will disappear (be overwritten).
To let students write an exam over time (for example an essay) you as a teacher keep the exam as active after your student has handed in their exam.
After the students have handed in their exam, the exam will be locked - the students are not able to access the exam.
When it’s time for the students to continue with the exam, go to Ongoing exams and click on the Unlock button on the far right of the students names, or click Unlock all if all the students are going to continue writing in the exam. That will enable the students to start the exam again.
If the time expires before submitted exam, a box will appear informing the student that the exam has now been submitted.
Should the student be entitled to extended time, then it is possible to reopen and extend the time. This is done by inserting a USB memory with the offline file of the exam to access the settings manually and extend or remove the time.
