How Will Unisa's Exams Work?
Unisa has announced that it will have no venue-based exams and that alternative assessments will take place. With the examination period fast approaching, how is it going to work?
Due to Covid-19 and the lockdown, Unisa has decided that there will be no venue-based examinations and that alternative assessments will take place. Electronic methods will be used so that the May/June examination period can commence.
'‘With venue-based examinations not being possible during the Covid-19 lockdown, it was essential to reconfigure the first-semester examination. Unisa takes pride in the fact that all concerned rose to the occasion to save the mid-year examinations'’ says Professor Veronica McKay, the Unisa's Acting Vice-Principal of Teaching, Learning, Community Engagement and Student Support.
How will it work?
Students who are registered on myUnisa will be informed through myUnisa by lecturers about the type of assessment that will be used for each module as well as have timetables available. It is therefore of great importance that Unisa students check their myUnisa portal regularly.
With each module, students will then receive a link that will have a step-by-step guide on the specific assessment method that will be used for that module.
Students will have the option of writing answers on paper and then have this paper be captured and sent to Unisa.
This link will also include step-by-step instructions on how to scan hand-written answers using a smartphone (if this applies to the type of examination).
Students are advised to get comfortable with scanning documents so that they are prepared to do this type of examination.
The semester 1 examination period will commence on 25 May 2020 and conclude on 7 July 2020.
Unisa is an open distance learning university which allows students to pursue their studies by using online resources and study materials provided by Unisa themself. They provide quality tertiary education which can be completed in a schedule chosen by the student.
