Anonymous written exams
The student Unions in Sweden have pursuing the issue of anonymous written exams. To minimize the risk of that the teachers unconsciously are biased by knowing who has written the exam. A student must know that he/she is evaluated by his/her results and that the evaluation is not affected by i.e. gender, religion or ethnic origin. The student cannot be anonymous if the teacher answers questions during the exam or during the review of the evaluation, or at oral exams and project presentations.
In order to write the exam you must sign up/register for the exam. If you are not registered, you must wait until the next exam period. When you sign up a code is generated. You must bring the exam code and a valid ID to the exam, the code shall be stated on all sheets and the cover sheet. The supervisor will check the code and your ID.
