Is this reading in the Canadian sense? I.e "taking their exams" Or is it reading as in they're merely reading the text.

This does seem a very unusual English translation

This makes no sense in English. They can read their exam papers, or in university they are reading, say, English if they are studying for an English degree, or they can be reading the results of their exams. Reading their exams makes no sense.

I said: "The students are reading their exams." Duolingo told me the correct answer was "The students are reading her exams." Huh???

You can say sitting or taking their exams, Reading their exams is very old fashioned.

I agree "reading exams" is not an American expression at all. It should be translated to "taking exams" for American English.
