A survey on the availability of IT infrastructure for Supervised Online Examinations
Dear Student,

We conducted unsupervised alternative paper based assessment method for the final year students since they had only a few subjects to complete their degree programmes. The method has its own limitations that we cannot avoid impersonation and other malpractices of students. Therefore, the faculty decided to have only supervised examinations for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd year students. However, it is not possible to have the examinations physically in the University during this pandemic period. Thus, we are examining the possibility of conducting supervised online examinations. In an supervised online examination, the students will be supervised (monitor) through a video conference system (Zoom or Team) during the whole examination. Therefore, as an online candidate, the student should be able to have an environment that is shown in Figure 1.

We have prepared a small questionnaire to collect data about the availability of the necessary infrastructure and the environment for students. Please respond to the following google form at your earliest convenience to make arrangements to conduct supervised online examinations. Please note that if it is not possible we will be forced to postpone the examination until the environment permit us to have examinations physically in the University.

Thank you
