2. How does a WISEflow exam work?

You can watch a short video about WISEflow here. If you are taking an electronic on-campus exam, you also need to test the FLOWlock browser.

The FLOWlock browser is a secure browser that prevents you from accessing other webpages or local files on your computer. It also blocks communication through e-mail or chat. Read more under point 3.

Some written exams allow access to computer files, web pages or applications. The FLOWlock browser is not in use during these exams. You still hand in your answer paper in WISEflow.

3. Installing FLOWlock browser and testing computer/mac

You need to download the FLOWlock browser at least two days before the day of the exam. You will find the necessary instructions here.

Once you have downloaded the FLOWlock browser, we strongly suggest that you to bring your computer to campus, log on to the Eduroam access service, and run the test version of the FLOWlock browser.

How to test the FLOWlock browser:  

  1. Close all other applications except the web browser
  2. Log in at https://uit.wiseflow.dk 
  3. On the main page "Flow overview", click on "Demoflows"
  4. Try out demo for the kind of exam you are going to have
