Dugga is a user friendly and intuitive system that is easy to use. Because Dugga is continuously developing and because there are several versions of Dugga (several different Dugga products), there may be differences between the pictures in this guide and how the system looks like for you.

This guide provides a general tutorial on how to use the Dugga platform. An important routine to make your own when you use Dugga, is to

  1. Have one or a couple of USB-sticks available when doing tests, so that you can save tests if a student would be lacking an internet connection.
  2. Make sure the students always have access to electricity for their computers/ digital devices to reduce any problems during exams.
  3. Always remind students to submit their tests by pressing the “Submit Test” button at the end of the exam.

This is so that students don’t forget to submit their tests with a test answer file/ USB-file if they didn’t have WiFi connection. Another problem is that pupils who just close their computers and leave the examination room can have trouble getting out of locked mode when later wanting to use the laptop at home. With these routines you’ll well prepared to begin doing testing and exams digitally.

Creating a test

  1. Figure 1

When logging into Dugga you’ll first get to “Edit exam”. In the top menu you can choose what to do. If you’re logging in for the first time there are no tests or activities available, so the first thing you can do is create an exam. Click on the button “New Exam” at the top left. 

Naming the test

Once you have clicked on “New Exam”, you’ll get to the interface you see in figure 1.

  1. Figure 2

The first thing you should do is name the tes you want to create. Give it a name you find appropriate, eg “Business Economy - Class 2017A”. In the name, you can also insert the course name/ class that the test is for. The system will automatically remember the date of when you made the exam.

Pick subject

After giving the test a name you can, if your school has entered or defined a number of subjects, pick the subject for your test. You then choose any of the topics in the drop-down menu. If none are available, leave it as “Unspecified subjects”.

Choose type of assessment

Choose type of assessment, points or rubrics/grading matrices. If you recently started using Dugga we recommend you choose “Points” because otherwise you have to add assessment matrices. It’s also much easier to learn how the system works by starting with points.

Choose extra teachers/examiners for grading and correction

As the next step, you choose whether you’re going to add more teachers in cases where multiple people are grading. If you’re a teacher who’s grading students alone, you can skip this step. You thus do not have to add extra examiners. An administrator has to add these teachers for them to be shown in the menu.


You can give your test a description, for example “Test 1 of 3 in the subject Geography - Topography, HT 2018”. This facilitates to keep track of which test it is. You can also enter which classes/ groups you plan to give the test to.

Share tests with other teachers

You can also choose to share the questions with other teachers, eg the ones in your team. Do this for the tests that you think are really good, so that you and your colleagues can build a collective exam collection. If you share these tests, the test bank can get quite full. But of course, you can delete exams.

Possibility to delete tests

The last thing you want to do is, if you want to, check the box for later being able to delete tests. If you, when bring familiar of
