Summer 2016 Exams.
•Exam Schedule. The final exams for the Summer term are listed in the Schedule of Classes available here. To find your personal exam schedule, go to your Web for Students account and navigate to the "Summer 2016" link under the "Schedule" heading in the lefthand menu. Your exam number is also provided there.
•Availability of Professors' Old Exams. Many professors make their old exams available for students to review. Information about accessing old exams is available by clicking here.
•Exam Emergencies. If an emergency occurs that may prevent you from taking a final exam, you or someone on your behalf should call Dean Sowle (312/906-5282) or Jenna Abhijeet (312/906-5005) as soon as possible. If you cannot reach either of us, call the Registrar's office (312/906-5080). Do not contact your professor about any problem connected with your exam, as this may compromise your anonymity. Please read Section VII of the Student Handbook, which contains the rules governing exams, exam conflicts, make-up exams, missed exams, and related issues; and review Article II of the Code of Conduct in the Student Handbook.
•Consulting Laptops/Tablet Computers During Exams. Unless your professor specifically authorizes it, you may not consult materials (notes, outlines, etc.) stored on a laptop computer, iPad, or other tablet computer or electronic device during an open book or limited open book exam; you are limited to consulting print materials authorized by your professor. Please note: This is separate from the issue of whether you may write your exam on your own laptop. The limitation described above applies whether you are writing your exam by hand or on a lab or laptop computer.
•Cell Phones During Exams. You are not permitted to use a cell phone during any exam, including during any restroom breaks. If you have a cell phone with you during an exam, it must be turned off and stored out of sight.
•Exam Method Notices.
Notice about SofTest: Students taking exams on laptop must download and install the SofTest exam-taking program. Even though you do not need to submit an Exam Method Registration form to use your laptop for exams, you do need to download and install SofTest. Click here for more information on SofTest and how to download and use it.
Unless a professor specifies otherwise, SofTest is configured to lock students out of other programs and services on their computers for the duration of the exam. This means that, unless a professor specifically authorizes access, students will not have access to notes, outlines, or other materials stored on their hard drive or the network.
Notice About Borrowing Laptops: The Information Technology Services department has a limited supply of laptop computers reserved for use in emergency situations that arise during exam period. These laptops may be used (subject to availability) if your computer has problems immediately before or during an exam, as long as the problem is not due to your failing to properly configure or register your laptop to run the SofTest program. Because of limited supply, the ITS department's laptops are not available for general loaning purposes during exam period. However, if you have exceptional circumstances that you believe justify borrowing a laptop for an exam, please contact Dean Sowle to discuss your situation.
Notice to Hand Writers: Students who are hand writing an exam will be placed in the same room used by laptop users for that exam. Hand writers will not be put in a separate room.
