1. The Midterm Exam is open book, open notes. The maximum time that you can spend in the exam is three hours. If you have not clicked the Submit For Grade button by then, you will be automatically exited from the exam. In the exam environment, the Windows clipboard is disabled, and so you still will not be able to copy exam questions or answers to or from other applications.
2. You should click the Save Answers button in the exam frequently.
This helps prevent connection timeouts that might occur with certain Internet Service Providers, and also minimizes lost answers in the event of connection problems. If your Internet connection does break, when you reconnect, you will normally be able to get back into your exam without any trouble. Remember, though, that the exam timer continues to run while students are disconnected, so students should try to re-log in as quickly as possible! The Help Desk cannot grant any student additional time on the exam.
3. Midterm Exams are closed end of Week 4.
