You can create open book essay style exams using the Turnitin Assignment tool in Minerva. This is a similar process to setting up a piece of coursework. Just as you would for a student assignment, you can set a deadline for submission. You use your Minerva module to make the exam questions available to students and they then have the set period in which to complete the exam.
