This paper explores the implementation of take-home exams at Heriot-Watt University: open-book, uninvigilated, open-web exams taken over a 24-hour period. Drawing primarily on a university-wide student survey, but also on three projects focused on particular parts of the university, the pape provides a picture of the impact of take-home exams at Heriot-Watt. The findings suggest that, while take-home exams have important benefits over traditional exams, students need support to understand the assessment requirements in order to manage their time and effort.
