- If at all possible, use Chrome or Firefox. We advise against Internet Explorer, Edge, or Safari for Sakai, as the user interface gives inconsistent results.
- IMPORTANT! 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, different entire browser. In other words, if you're taking the test in Chrome, have your reference page open in Firefox or Internet Explorer. DO NOT have the test open in more than one window AT ALL. EVER!
- Save often. Save after every question. Sakai automatically logs you out after 60 minutes of inactivity, and it doesn't count test entries as activity, so again, save your work often!
- If you're having issues with entering numbers in numeric questions ("you have non numerical values in numerical fields"), save your work. Then either try another browser, or clear your browser's' cache, directions are here: https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-clear-cache-2617980
