The Schoolyear application prevents access to unauthorized programs, documents and websites during an exam. When starting the application, Schoolyear is loaded fullscreen and all running programs and documents are shut down. Only the test application is visible on your screen. Schoolyear has its own browser, which means no one has access to your personal browsing behaviour, browser history or documents.
During the exam, Schoolyear monitors whether the application is running fullscreen and if you are trying to use other webpages. Schoolyear detects any suspicious behaviour such as short keys (Ctrl+Alt+Del) or exiting the browser. In case of suspicious behaviour or incidents, the proctor will be notified.
Schoolyear cannot control your laptop remotely, not even during the exam. As a student, you keep control over your own laptop at all times and you can decide to shut down Schoolyear at any time, even during an exam. Beware that closing Schoolyear during the exam might have consequences.
