eClass Exam Digitization Service

Article Last Updated July 2021

During the rapid shift online in March 2020 due to the Covid pandemic, eClass began assisting instructors moving assessments online by converting digital files into electronic exams. As this service was intended to provide instructors with a starting point for moving exams online, with the return to in-person learning in Fall 2021, exams will no longer be digitized on demand. Instead, eClass will be working with instructors to train them in building and administering examinations through eClass to improve online exam delivery and the student experience.

Instructors should begin by leveraging the guide for creating quizzes, and this short instructional videos for basic aspects of quiz building here in eClass 101. Information on the basic mechanisms for importing and uploading files into the course question bank is also available.

Instructors can also use 2 helper tools to assist them in this process: the Exam Digitizer, a custom tool that converts MS Word exams into eClass quiz questions; and Respondus Quiz Authoring tool

Please note that online exams may not be required so instructors should follow any department, faculty, or central academic directives on assessment and should also consult the Centre for Teaching and Learning’s guidelines for online assessment.
