Procedure:

  1. Place your personal belongings (including cell phones, smart watches and calculators) in appropriate area in the
    Testing Center. Check in at the front desk with your University ID.
  2. The proctor will assign you a seating badge and place your ID in it. Go to the corresponding computer station
    and hang the ID badge with your ID on the hook on your computer.
  3. Fill out all of the information at the top of the official scratch paper and sign the Academic Integrity Statement.
    Do not write anything below the top area until the proctor enters the password and begins your test.
  4. Log into your class and access your assessment.
  5. There will be a plastic cup at your computer station. When you have logged in and are ready to begin the test,
    place the cup on the partition behind your computer and a proctor will come to put the password in for you.
  6. If you need more scratch paper, have any problems, or need some form of assistance, raise the plastic cup any
    time and a proctor will come to help you. Note: The proctor cannot assist you with questions about the
    assessment or the use of a calculator.
  7. When you finish your quiz/test, double check your answers, and click the SUBMIT TEST button.
  8. For some courses, click on REVIEW TEST to look through your graded assessment. If you believe a question was
    graded inappropriately by the computer you may ask for and fill out a pink sheet at this time. Do not close the
    test if you wish to fill out a pink sheet. If you close your test before reviewing it by mistake, contact your
    instructor.

    from your instructor/syllabus on how to fill out a pink sheet.
  10. Return your calculator (if applicable), seating badge, official scratch paper, and pink sheet to the proctor at the
    front desk before exiting the Testing Center. Failure to return your official scratch paper may result in a zero.
