ITX Flex

When you take a digital written on-site exam, it may be mandatory for you to install and run the ITX Flex program on your computer during the entire exam. ITX Flex is a program for monitoring your computer during the exam. If use of ITX Flex is mandatory, it is your own responsibility to make sure the program remains running on your computer during the entire exam.

See the guide to taking on-site written exams using ITX Flex.

Especially for Mac users:

Remember to enable monitoring on your Mac. See guide here

ITX-Flex and Linux

If you use the Linux operating system, it is not possible to activate the ITX-Flex digital monitoring system.

When you arrive for the written on-site exam, you must notify the site supervisor about you using Linux. You will then be placed under more strict supervision by the exam site supervisor during the exam.

It is your responsibility to make sure that the site supervisor is aware that you are using Linux.

To access the demoexam you have to use:

  • Personal code for the demoexam: E00000
  • Pincode for the demoexam: 00000

For the demoexam the following applies:

  • The demoexam starts after 2 minutes and lasts 10 minutes.
  • You can test that ITX Flex is visible as a red square surrounding the edges of your screen and thereby, that everything is working accordingly.
  • ITX Flex will record while running the demoexam, but no data will be saved.
  • You cannot test the actual hand-in, as this is to be done through eksamen.au.dk
  • Notice! This version of the demo exam is outdated. In the demo exam, you can access a working library for your set of exam questions and your own exam paper. In a real exam, this is not possible, as ITX Flex will henceforth only be used for monitoring your computer. During a real exam, you download your set of exam questions in Digital Exam instead of in ITX Flex, and you choose a place on your computer where you continuously save your exam paper outside of ITX Flex.
