Depending on your planned setup, you may need one or more of the following functionalities to organise your on-site summative tests. Have a look at the linked help articles for more detailed information about each of the functionalities.

If you have any questions or you need help designing the setup of you on-site summative tests, please don't hesitate to contact us at support@grasple.com.

IP filtering for on-site testing

  • Use this to prevent students from accessing the exam from other locations.

  • Setting an IP filter for tests is an admin functionality, which is not avaliable to Teachers.

    • Not sure whether your organisation has an admin or who it is? Reach out to support@grasple.com.

URL filtering for on-site testing

  • Use this to prevent students from accessing external websites during the exam.

  • This is only possible if your students are using university-managed devices for their exams.


    IMPORTANT: If you’re using a URL filter which prevents students from accessing their mailbox:

    • Make sure your students accept their emailed invite to the course before coming to the test location.

    IMPORTANT: If your students usually access Grasple through an LMS, and your URL filter prevents students from accessing the LMS and their mailbox:

    • Make sure your students login to our standalone application at least once before coming to the test location. They may need to verify their account, for which they need access to their email.

Adding students to your exam course

Using the Schoolyear integration

  • Our Schoolyear integration provides an opportunity to allow on-site Bring Your Own Device testing within a lock-down browser.

  • A Schoolyear license is required to enable this integration. If you are interested, contact Schoolyear about this.

Block student access to other Grasple content

  • You can prevent students from accessing other Grasple content during a test.

  • To use this option your test has to have an end time (closing time or duration should be set).

Note: To use this option it has to be enabled for your organisation. If you don't see it in the advanced test settings reach out to your Grasple contact person or support.

Add students via their organisation (student) ID

  • It is possible for you to add students to your test/course via their unique organisation ID, which will be provided to us via SurfConext.

  • This can be done through both adding a single student and adding multiple students via CSV.

Note: To use this option it has to be enabled for your organisation. Please reach out to your Grasple contact person or Support if you need us to enable this feature.
