One of the policies implemented by the Open University to measure student competency is through the implementation of the online examination system (SUO). SUO implementation is aimed at giving students the choice of exam models. Through SUO, students can take exams outside the UAS schedule, saving students travel time (because students do not have to wait for the next semester to repeat non-graduating courses), and make it easier for students to choose the test time. In its development, SUO which has been developed since 2009, received a good response from students, as evidenced by the increasing number of students who chose this system. To bring services closer to students, UT in 2019 began implementing SUO outside the UPBJJ-UT office, one of which was in the UT Palembang area. There are 4 locations selected for SUO, namely in Lahat, Baturaja, Belitang, and Lubuk Linggau. The choice is determined based on the number of students in the area, geographical constraints, and the availability of a stable internet network. The implementation of SUO in the regions has had a positive impact on students with good grades. However, the acquisition of good student exam scores is not yet supported by the Standard Operating Procedure concerning good administrative services. This paper aims to discuss how to make SUO outside the UPBJJ office have an Operational Standard Procedure for Online Examination Systems based on the conditions in the field, so as to be able to support quality Online Test System administration services for Open University students.
