Coderingsproblemen TestVision oorzaak mislukken online examens in Nederland

Studenten aan Nederlandse universiteiten hadden vorige week moeite met het online afleggen van hun examens. De fout hiervoor was niet met Proctorio, zoals werd beweerd, maar met TestVision.

Munich , 22 December 2020 /EZPress/ - Last week, some students at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Universiteit van Amsterdam, Maastricht University and Tilburg University had problems taking their exams online. The reason for this was a coding problem in TestVision`s learning management system (LMS).

TestVison sent over 20,000 requests to Proctorio`s system at the same time (that was over 80 percent of all requests at that time!). In order to handle the large amount of requests at the same time, Proctorio then removed its "throttling mechanism". This allowed all of Proctorio`s requests to be processed without any problems. And more importantly, all exams proctored by Proctorio could be completed without any problems despite the disruption.

TestVison`s disruptions even caused problems on NON-Proctored exams such as those at Maastricht University.

"Since the disruptions, we have been trying to engage in conversation with TestVision in order to work together to save our customers, the universities, from further disruptions. Unfortunately, our inquiries have not been answered," says Thomas Fetsch, Area Manager Proctorio.

"We are willing to talk and would like to have a joint exchange. We, Proctorio, work with the world`s leading LMS providers such as Moodle, Canvas, Blackboard, EvaExam, ILIAS - without disruption. We defend ourselves from TestVision`s accusations that Proctorio caused the disruption of online exams at Dutch universities. We are happy to disclose our protocols."
