The information page for the oral exam is very similar to other exams. It is indicated in the blue banner that it is an oral exam.

Ready for grading  - Note that as a grader you can start to mark an oral exam as soon as the test start time is reached.

Marking a candidate

As soon as the oral or practical exam starts for a student the grader clicks "Start oral exam"

When the exam has started for the chosen candidate, the duration will update continously. The grader can set a grade directly or open the different questions.

If the grader opens the question he will see the question text. The question text in an oral exam is not viewable by the student and is written for the graders only..
It could be a list of relevant questions the grader can ask the candidate or a list of what the candidate should include in his answers.


Because the candidate will not open the oral exam in Inspera Assessment, it is the grader that will change the candidates status during an oral exam. The initial state for a candidate is "Did not attend". 
Below we have listed the different actions the will changes the candidates status during an oral exam.   

The grader can change the status of the candidate during the exam. These are the different statuses:

Resume - Nothing is deleted. The duration will start to update again and the grader can change the grade and edit privat notes.

As soon as the candidate is given a grade the exam ends and the duration stops.  it is possible to resume afterthe gradehas been set.
