 Rules for Test-Taking in Sakai

  1. Only have ONE browser tab, the Sakai test, open in one browser at a time. If you need to have another internet window open for reference, use another browser. In other words, if you're taking the test in Chrome, have your reference page open in Firefox or Internet Explorer.
  2. Sakai automatically logs you out after 60 minutes of inactivity, and it doesn't count test entries as activity, so save your work often!
  3. It's not a good idea to let the timer submit for you, if your test is timed. We have seen a rise in problems that result from this. 
  4. For essay questions, it's a good idea to write your questions out in Word or NotePad and copy/paste into the test text box.

For non-emergency assistance, please use the help pages below:
