About Exam4 and Student ID Numbers

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 09:26
p In spite of training during the 1L year, a href=/node/14013regular announcements/a, a href=/it/exam4-practice-testinformation on our Web site/a, and a href=/it/computer-exam-policypolicy/a, instructing students to balways/b identify themselves on Exam4 practice tests using one's ULink user name (e.g., ilhoswa01/i), some students continue to use their UofL Student ID Number, instead. /p p In the over ten years that the Brandeis School of Law has permitted students to take exams on computer, we have bnever/b required, asked or wanted students to identify themselves on any practice or real exam using student ID numbers. We never have, and we never will, so I am completely puzzled about how any student ever understood that he/she should use his/her student ID number on any electronic exam, practice or real. /p p Last spring, with the introduction of the app on the School of Law's Web site, which automatically sends an e-mail confirming receipt of one's valid Exam4 practice test, it became even more imperative that students submit practice tests using their ULink user names, and only their ULink user names. /p p - Dean Becker /p
