Final Exam Software Training

If you are taking a final exam on a computer (either in a computer lab or on your notebook) you will be using a new examination software called SofTest. It is made by the same company that made XMN8R which is the program you used if you took a final exam on computer in the Spring 1999, although this version is significantly different.

In order to familiarize you with the program before final exams, we are offerring training classes to walk you through this new product and how you will use it during your exam.

These training sessions will be very brief (20-30 minutes) and not comprehensive about the product. At the sessions, we will provide you with a printed user's manual and access to the on-line tutorial that will take you through the program's features more thoroughly. You will also be able to download this program to your personal computer and run through a practice test at your own leisure.

Here are the days and times of the training sessions. All sessions will be held in Lab 700.

3:00p - 3:30p
5:15p - 5:45p

If you are unable to attend any of these training sessions, please email helpdesk or call 312/906-5300 to make other arrangements.

FYI: Network Maintenance

Regular general maintenance of the network is necessary to ensure greater performance, both in terms of speed and the prevention of any serious problems. To achieve these goals, the Center for Law and Computers will periodically take down the network to perform this maintenance. We've scheduled the maintenance on a monthly basis, for only 1.5 hours on days and at times to inconvenience the least amount of users. 

Here are the dates that we will be taking the network down. On these days, the network will not be available between 5:30am and 7:00am.
