Frequently Asked Questions

What is a take-home examination?

Take-home examination is an open-book examination that can be done at home or virtually anywhere you deem appropriate, with access to textbooks, lecture notes, internet and any other resources which might be useful.
However, you should not rely solely on your course materials or other resources when doing the examination. Questions in the exam paper will focus on ability to apply the knowledge you learnt from the course. Since the examination will typically last around two to three hours, you would not have sufficient time to look for answers in your course materials on the spot. Therefore, you should make sure to prepare ahead of time and study as usual.

Am I allowed to copy from course materials or discuss with others during a take-home examination?

While you will be able to access course materials and other resources, you are still expected to uphold academic integrity when doing the take-home examination.

You should answer the exam questions in your own words. Assessment will be based on your ability to apply concepts and ideas from your course(s). Therefore, you should NOT rely on quoting or citing other sources in your answers. You are not expected to quote from other sources in your answers, whether directly or indirectly, in the take-home examination.
You should also complete the take-home examination on your own. You are not allowed to discuss, share, or check your answers with other examinees or any third party.
By extension, cheating in any form, such as plagiarism, collusion with others, or impersonation of or by another person, is serious violation of the University’s regulations on academic integrity. In cases where a student is suspected to have violated the University’s expectations of academic integrity, committed any disciplinary offense or violated any rule of regulation of the University, his/her case will be investigated thoroughly and shall be dealt with in accordance with the University’s Regulations Governing Academic Integrity and Student Discipline.

What would be the arrangement for students with disabilities or special educational needs?
If you have previously applied for special examination arrangements, you should have received an email from the Examination Office with specific arrangements pertaining to your requests and needs.

What would be the arrangement for students sitting supplementary/ re-sit/ deferred examinations?

If you are arranged to sit a supplementary, re-sit or deferred examination in this term, you will be doing the take-home examination paper as well.

For students who are scheduled to take a re-sit/deferred examination, you should be able to access OLE as usual.

For students who are scheduled to take a supplementary examination, you should have received an email about the access link to OLE.
If you have any questions regarding the examination procedures, please contact ba@ouhk.edu.hk or 2768 6940.
