Exam Instructions

Prepare to Take Your Exam

  • Use the restroom beforehand.
  • Make sure you have all the items you will need (scratch paper, calculator, pencils, etc.)
  • Make sure you do NOT have any unauthorized materials in your work area. This includes smart watches and headphones.
  • Make sure you are alone and others will not enter the room. If this is impossible, let your proctor know at the beginning of the exam and refrain from talking with other people.
  • Plug your devices into an outlet or power bank.
  • Put your phone in Do Not Disturb mode--notifications can interrupt your connection to the Zoom meeting.

Take Your Exam

  1. Log in to the CBTF scheduler 10 minutes before your exam starts. (If you are more than 10 minutes late, you will be unable to check in.) Click the green check-in button next to your reservation.
  2. You will be taken to the pre-check-in screen. Read the instructions, then click "Check-in". You will only receive the Zoom link after you have checked in for your exam.
  3. Follow the link you are given to your Zoom meeting on your phone or tablet. You can also find this link in your email from the CBTF. You must use the link, not type in the meeting ID, and sign in with SSO using your netID and password.
  4. Double check that your display name in Zoom is correct. The proctor needs to know who you are.
  5. Make sure to write down your proctor's email address as soon as they send it, just in case you get kicked out of the meeting, lose internet connection, etc. and need to contact them.
  6. Wait for your proctor to tell you to begin, then follow the post-check-in instructions for accessing your exam.
  7. Follow the proctor's time calls, not any timer in your exam. When time is called, stop working immediately and follow the after-exam instructions in the CBTF Scheduler. Whenever you finish your exam, let the proctor know before leaving the meeting.
