Coding exams

I started Section 10 Coding Exam and realized I wasn't going to be able to finish it

before I had to leave for dinner engagement.  Does anyone know if we just "sign out" and

the answers will be saved for when we return?  I just was not thinking when I started the

exam that I wouldn't have time to finish it.  Is there a special way to save it and return to it?

thanks!  K

Hi Kathy,

Someone asked about pre-printing the exams before and Glenda replied with this. 

...yes, you will have to open the exam in order to print it.  You can either print directly from the page or you can copy and paste the questions into a document on your computer to print from there.  I recommend the latter, as there's a lot of extra formatting on the page that isn't very printer-friendly directly from most browser windows, so you'll end up using a lot of paper.  If you copy and paste the questions into a blank document, you can usually cut it down from about 7 pages to only 1 or 2 most of the time!

You only are allowed one attempt to submit your answers for grading, but you can open the exam to view as many times as you want, before and after you submit your answers.

You can actually enter your answers and save your progress on an exam without submitting it for grading.  Select your answers (on multiple choice exams) or type them in (on coding exams), and click the "Next" button at the bottom of the page to save your progress.  Just don't click the "Submit" button on the second page, but instead use your browser's back button or go back to your home page or Module 1 page through the Navigation menu or the link at the top of the page, and you should find your test still in progress the next time you open it up!

Yes, I was able to go back and finish the exam this morning.  My answers were saved from before...YAY!  I had never NOT finished an exam after starting it and was hesitant to do so, but I had to do it in this case.  Thanks for replying!
