Not even when the exam time is over.

    Question: Is it possible to edit the answer key after exam performance?

    Answer: Yes, this is possible. Open questions are assigned to assessors per rule within the recipe. You can determine this distribution system yourself. Please note! If each assessor only corrects one question, please seperate the questions by adding them to different rules in the recipe. Please click here for more information (see the yellow tip under step 3).
