Example: Combining written and oral exams
This example contains a written assignment that needs to be defended orally. The students submit their assignments in groups which means the FLOWassign or FLOWhandin must be the first flow in FLOWcombine. Afterwards you can add a FLOWoral. You will now see this image on your flow overview:
You can handle both participants and assessors from your main flow Written assignment in your FLOWcombine and you do not have to add them manually on all your sub flows.
Before activating the flows
Before you activate your FLOWcombine you want to do the plan for the examination. To get all your participants to the next flow click on Synchronize sub flows and all your participants from the first flow will be on your FLOWoral (deactivated). You should not change the entrance bar to other than None. Next up is managing the periods.
Activate the flows when necessary. Now you need the actual participants who needs to defend their written assignment orally. Set the entrance bar to handed in or a minimum grade. The participants who did not hand in will be deactivated in the examination periods. You can replace the deactivated participant with a break or simple delete the participant.
In this example the students need to submit their assignment in a group (Choose group paper as group type and manage the groups in the FLOWassign) but the defense is individually which means the participants need to go from being in a group on the FLOWassign (Written assignment) to be split up on the FLOWoral (Oral defense). This is done in Configuration. Choose that you want the participants with group references.
Example: Combining FLOWlock and FLOWmulti
With FLOWcombine you have the opportunity to combine a FLOWlock and a FLOWmulti. In this example the students need to complete both a FLOWlock and a FLOWmulti in three hours.
The main flow is the flow which you synchronise from to the sub flows. The flow that needs to be displayed first you create a new FLOWcombine as that specific flowtype. In the example the FLOWlock is the main flow and FLOWmulti the sub flow.
The access (time and date) to the flows works as usually where you set the start and end time for both participants and assessors. With FLOWcombine you do not need to add participants, groups, and assessors to each flow because you can synchronise from the main flow.
How it looks for the participants
When the flows are created as a FLOWcombine the participant can see that the flows are connected.
