EXAMS ON COMPUTER PROCEDURES

Please know that the exam monitoring software used for remote students only allows for a secure exam environment and will not have the option to access documents on the laptop during the exam.  Since everyone must take the exam with the same conditions applied there will be no internet access nor access to documents electronically, with the exception of take home exams.   

The Academic Services Office will be happy to help anyone who needs assistance with printing any materials.   If you need assistance with printing, please contact Academic Services.  

 

Note that the question text for each individual exam question will appear in the question field.  In other words, instead of a general “Answer question 1 here” type of message, the actual test question will be shown.  The answer options for any multiple choice and/or true-false questions will also be displayed.    In addition, the test document, in its entirety, will be attached within the exam file for reference anytime during the exam.   This format will be set up the same for both remote and in-person students. 

 

Please make sure that you have followed the procedures indicated below to install the updated software and complete the required mock test.  Contact Academic Services if there are any questions, any problems with installing the software or completing the mock test.
