Create an exam by pressing the + Create button and select Exam.
You will now have a number of basic exam settings before proceeding.
NOTE! After pressing "Create" you will not be able to change allowed exam clients or to Anonymize Submissions. If you have already made an exam that you want to change these in, you can choose to copy the exam and create a new one.
Anonymous submissions are created in Google Drive 45 minutes after the exam deadline.
See the article "Writing anonymous exams"
Create calendar event for an exam
You can choose to invite all teachers and students or only all teachers to a Google calendar event for the exam.
Those who have been invited to the exam will receive a calendar event in their Google calendar that describes how to start the test.
The start and end time for the exam gives the frame for when the exam is available to the student. The time limit determines the number of minutes the student has to write the exam whit in the frame
There are three different types of PINs to put to the test in ChromEx
1. To start the exam - To check that all students can log in to their devices and start the exam before they start writing. For example, before national exams.
2. To resume the exam - If a student has submitted an exam and you as a teacher choose to let the student resume the exam, this PIN code is used.
3. To submit a test - If you want the student not to be able to submit the test before you as a teacher have checked it, use this PIN code.
You can choose the type of device that the student writes their exam on. Keep in mind that if you combine exam clients, there may be some limitations.
The "Browser via https://student.chromex.io" option is an insecure mode and should not be used to write secure exams but only to test ChromEx in a web browser.
To configure exam clients for students, see articles below:
Chromebook (Kioskapp och ChromEx Agent)
This option is for students who have Chromebooks that they are writing the exam on. The kiosk app is located on the page where they sign in to their Chromebooks.
If you have chosen to join our beta for ChromEx Agent, the students have received an add-on installed by your administrator. There should be an icon on the student's computer that indicates this:
To start the exam, students simply go to https://student.chromex.io and when they open the exam, the extension will lock down their device.
To allow students to use the iPad when writing exams in ChromEx, the teacher needs to allow submissions using the iPad when creating the exam. Students only need to install and open the app when writing exams with their iPad.
NOTE! The app will remember the password of all users who have logged in until they clear the history and website data for Safari in settings.
Mac OS X and Windows (Safe Exam Browser)
Safe Exam Browser is needed to securely write tests with ChromEx on Windows and Mac OS devices.
Note that SEB should NOT be used on a Chromebook (Chrome OS).
Safe Exam Browser is specially developed to be used for test writing on MAC or PC in a safe way. Safe Exam Browser is downloaded here and should be installed on students' devices before using ChromEx with Windows and MAC OS. As Safe Exam Browser is the program that ensures that students' computers are locked down on Windows and MAC OS, it is important that students install and test Safe Exam Browser before a test session with ChromEx starts.
Once students have installed Safe Exam Browser on their computers, they should use the link https://chromex.io/seb to open ChromEx in Safe Exam Browser. The link, https://chromex.io/seb must first be opened in Chrome, from there the link takes students on to the Safe Exam Browser. The students should therefore not open the link in SEB but in their regular browser (Chrome).
Writing exams directly in Browser (UNSECURE MODE)
If there is no need to write exams in safe mode, the exams can be written and submitted directly from a web browser. We recommend the Chrome browser. Students then write the test directly on the page: student.chromex.io. Note that the teacher creating the test must specify that it may be written directly in the student.chromex.io browser. This means that the test is then not locked in the same way as in the "kiosk", without the students gaining access to the internet.
Here you set accessibility options for the whole group of students who write the exam.
If you instead want to activate accessibility at the individual level, do so in the next section:
