Kurzinformation

Electronic tests are a central part of digital teaching at RWTH Aachen University. The RWTH uses the examination system Dynexite (link only available in German). The software is developed and maintained by the department Medien für die Lehre at the Center for Teaching and Learning Services (link only available in German) of the RWTH Aachen University.  'Medien für die Lehre' supports lecturers in the context of a full-service offer with the implementation of tasks as well as the planning and execution of your electronic exams.

The e-examination system Dynexite can be used not only for summative examinations but also for assignments during the semester. It can be integrated as a third-party system into course rooms in RWTHmoodle. The integration works via a block that is added to the course room. This contains a clickable button that directs students to Dynexite. There they can access the appropriate context directly without an additional login and complete their exercises.

Access to Dynexite is available via the RWTHmoodle course room. Participants of the course can access the corresponding context in Dynexite with a single click and without an additional login. If a login via RWTHmoodle is not possible, the login via the homepage of Dynexite via the RWTH Single Sign-On is an alternative option.
