OLAT supports the execution of tests or other tasks in order to assess achievements.

Assessment mode

Further information can be found in the chapter "Working With Course Elements". In order to conduct such efficiency controls under regulated conditions, Authors can implement an assessment mode. While the assessment mode is in effect, access to all OLAT functions are restricted, bar the configured relevant course elements and the logout. Such a regulated assessment always has a defined duration and may include preparation and follow-up time, during which all OLAT functions are also inaccessible.


Exam mode is only available on the exam environments, not on OLAT at

Safe Exam Browser (SEB)

It is possible that the use of the Safe Exam Browser (SEB) is required in order to take the assessment. You will be notified of this requirement in the unlikely case that you didn’t already start OLAT in the Safe Exam Browser. In that case, however, you will need to log in to OLAT with the Safe Exam Browser in order to take the exam.
