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.
