Changing the password for an exam

For an official OLAF exam, the password is changed after half an hour. This means that if a student leaves the room, they cannot access the test with the original password (they need to talk to the invigilator).

If you are managing the test yourselves, e.g. for a resit or extraordinary sitting, you may wish to do this yourself. (Contact olaf.admin@ncl.ac.uk first if you need help setting up a copy of the exam).

To change the password:

1. Locate the test in the course.

2. Hover over the drop down menu to the right of the assignment name. Use the drop down arrow to the right of the test name to access the  ‘Edit Settings‘ option.

3. Scroll down to 2.Test Availability, the last item is the password (see screenshot below). Make the change and scroll down and click Submit.
