In this talk José Luis Aznarte will cover UNED’s experience in digitalizing the exam/assessment process during the pandemic lockdowns. Starting with a brief review of our standard assessment protocol, we will dive into the decision process during the emergency provoked by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, including the rejection of invasive forms of vigilance. We will share the results of a social research into the expectations and satisfaction levels of the student community regarding the technical and social aspects of the solution finally adopted by the university.
