Hybrid Exams: on campus and remote

This article discusses how to create a hybrid exam and how to prevent issues. Hybrid exams are written exams that are administered both on campus and remotely (at home), at the same time. Both exam modes (on-campus and remote) have the same assessment method (written exam). 

Why use hybrid exams? 

Hybrid exams allow students who cannot come to campus to finish the course in a remote exam, at the same time as the students that take the exam on campus. It prevents study delays. 

Hybrid exams are relevant for: 

  1. Students who cannot take the exam on campus during to a chronic illness or handicap (requires permission from their Board of Examiners) 

  1. Students who cannot take the exam on campus due to family care obligations or other special circumstances (requires permission from their Board of Examiners) 

  1. Students with an ‘elite athlete status’ (Dutch: topsportstatus) who are temporarily located elsewhere in the world (requires permission from their Board of Examiners) 

  1. Students who are located elsewhere in the world due to an education activity that is part of their TU Delft degree programme (requires permission from their Board of Examiners) 

  1. During a pandemic: students who have to quarantine but are fit to take the exam
