Abstract: Electronic exams taken in specifically equipped electronic exam rooms are growing in popularity in Finnish Higher Education. The systems used for the purpose are provided with the essay question type which requires manual grading, and on the other hand provides the teacher with the opportunity to give students individual, written feedback. When log data from the system used at the University of Helsinki was analysed, the results indicate that teachers do provide their students with individual comments on their submissions. On the other hand, some of the comments could not be defined as feedback in the pedagogical sense. Interviewed teachers perceived that the electronic examining process in whole provided added values for themselves and their students as the eased and flowing process, and as the increased opportunity to give and receive feedback for the exam response.
