Dear Teaching Staff,
We have prepared detailed information for you to refer to in the process of transitioning to online teaching and examinations. If you have any questions or any suggestions regarding information which we have not yet included, please use our contact form.
Please use QISPOS and SAP for managing examination registrations and recording grades. Please check also the information for students.
Oral examinations may be carried out temporarily by video conference. Under the circumstances it is also currently permissible for each person participating in the examination to be alone in one room.
The following prerequisites apply:
Conducting Online Examinations:
Written examinations can be changed to oral examinations if it can be guaranteed thatknowledge and skills can be assessed suitably in this way.
The Examination Committee must be informed in advance.
Examinations which are held and assessed electronically via ISIS with time-controlled access. In this case, the following will apply:
Online examinations or similar formats may be offered if:
For portfolio examinations, the examination format may be changed for individual portfolio components. In this case, the following will apply:
You can import existing registrations in QISPOS/SAP into the next examination period and then continue the examination. Withdrawal is not required in this case, but is still possible if students wish to do so
Registration for examinations to be held in the summer semester 2020 is still required. For this purpose:
Deregistration from an examination up until the day of the examination without giving reasons will be temporarily permitted in the summer semester 2020. Deregistration must be requested by email to the exam team and the examiner/academic chair at the latest on the day of the examination before the time the examination is scheduled to begin or until the start of the first element of a portfolio examination.
If examinations are canceled by the university, you will need to import the exam registrations into the next exam period in QISPOS. You can find instructions here: https://www.pruefungen.tu-berlin.de/fileadmin/ref10/How_to/QISPOS_Pruefung_verschieben.pdf Examination registrations that were not submitted via QISPOS are only canceled by the Examination Office when a further attempt is re-registered, i.e. they remain open until then; deregistration is not required.
If students deregister or withdraw from an examination/term paper, this will not count as an examination attempt.
Final theses can be registered by email to the responsible exam team. The procedure otherwise remains unchanged and will be carried out only electronically. The following steps are required to register a thesis:
If you receive an incomplete form, please forward it to the responsible examination team.
If a candidate decides to withdraw from a thesis, this shall not count as an attempt.
For the time being, we will not forward final theses sent by post for assessment.
We will forward final theses received via email to the examiners for assessment in a timely manner. Although the deadline for the assessment will continue to be 6-8 weeks in the cover letter, reminders will not be sent before 10-12 weeks have passed.
Applications to the Examination Committee for extensions of repeat examinations which have been either canceled or from which students have withdrawn are not required from 12.03.2020. The coming summer semester (2020) will also not be counted in the calculation of deadlines for repeat examinations. In other words, deadlines which expire on 31.3.2020 or 30.9.2020 will be automatically extended until winter semester 20/2021 - i.e. 31.3.2021 (the same procedure as applies to academic leave of absence).
All requests for extensions which are justified before 12.3.2020 and are not related to the outbreak of the coronavirus, must continue to be assessed and decided on by the Examination Committee.
Students in degree programs whose study and examination regulations will expire on 31.3.2020 or 30.9.2020 have the possibility to complete their degree program by 31.3.2021 in accordance with the expiring regulations. A separate application for an extension is not required.
Please note that information on the timely registration of examinations may need to be adjusted.
Students/applicants must submit applications and supporting documents electronically to the module coordinator; proof must be signed as far as possible and attached as a scan or photo. After processing the modules you are responsible for (complete and sign electronically if possible), the following action may be taken:
All applications available from the Examination Office website can be used by students; they can be completed electronically or printed, completed and scanned. If necessary, please sign the documents submitted electronically or send us the students’ requests as an email attachment with your confirmation in the text. Please use your TU Berlin email account.
