Paper Exams with evaexam

The software "evaexam" is available to members of the UZH for the digital evaluation of paper exams.

With evaexam you create and evaluate your paper exam independently. Due to the effort involved, we recommend registration only with closed question types (single choice, multiple choice, etc.) for a minimum of 50 participants.

Tasks for test administrators

  • Decision on who is responsible for test creation and verification (manual correction)
  • Decision as to whether individualized or non-individualized Examination forms are used
  • Create test sheet, incl. scoring and recording of correct answers
  • Set up and conduct test check
