This article describes testing of the use of alternative exam/evaluation and the use of an ICT learning environment at the Department of Computer and Information Science, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (IDI/NTNU). The use of this particular learning environment is described in a previous article (Staupe, 2010). Thus, this article particularly describes the part which deals with the testing of alternative exam/evaluation formats. The students could choose between three different formats.
1) A 100% traditional exam with optional exercise reports. The exercises were looked over and commented on by those who had chosen the second alternative (13%).
2) A 50% traditional exam, 50% exercise work (10%).
3) Exercise work counted for 100% (77%). In total, 129 students participated.
