Type of Exam        
For an online exam in Blackboard, has Auto Submit been selected for the exam?
(NOTE: If you select yes for auto-submit, it will save the exam for the student and submit it when the student reaches the max. allotted time whether the student has completed the exam or not. If you do not want your students stopped at the max. allotted time, please do not select this option. Please also be aware that this option may cause issues within the testing center if there is an emergency such as a fire alarm because your student will lose time during the exam and have to be reset and start the exam again.)

For an online exam in Blackboard, has Force Completion been selected?
(NOTE: The DL Testing Center staff recommends that you do not set force completion on your Blackboard exams. If force completion is not selected it allows us to immediately re-enter a student into an exam (with the password) in the event of a technical problem. The student can then resume the exam instead of restarting again. )

For an online exam in Blackboard, will you be using the Lockdown Browser by Respondus?
(IMPORTANT: If you are using the Lockdown Browser, please make sure to supply the password generated by the Lockdown Browser and the password you created for the exam to the DL Testing Center Staff by emailing dltesting@wku.edu.)
