 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. 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:

Zoom is a cloud video conferencing tool that works from either an installed client or from within your browser. It is another web conferencing tool we are adding to enhance teaching and learning at NPS.

Like Collaborate, Zoom is readily incorporated into Sakai courses to be used for conducting lectures. By default, students and guests do not need a Zoom account, but instructors will need to have an NPS-associated account set up to create and administer Zoom meetings. If you would like a Zoom account, please contact the CLE helpdesk at For more information, please visit the Zoom Information pages, or call the CLE helpdesk at 831-656-2020.


Microsoft Teams is the digital hub that brings conversations, content, assignments, and apps (especially other Microsoft products) together in one place.
