When you are done with your exam, click the Finish Exam button, or press Ctrl-Q (Windows) or CMD-Q (Mac). These are the only ways to exit the program (don't worry if you accidentally click the Finish button during your exam because you will be given a chance to return to your exam on the next screen.) Once you have exited the program, you will not be allowed to return to your answer to modify it because the files are encrypted for security purposes.
When you exit the program, EBB automatically saves your final exam in an encrypted format on your hard disk and flash drive. EBB will upload the final version of your exam to the network (if you have chosen that option and your wireless connection is working properly) and then will redirect you to the Submit Exams Web site so that you can manually upload your exam file to the network (as an extra backup precaution).
You will get either a green or yellow screen after you exit EBB. The green screen indicates that your exam was saved to the network and disk successfully. If you are saving to flash drive only (saving to the network is not required), you will get a yellow screen. A yellow screen will also appear if there has been any problem saving to the network or to your flash drive. DO NOT WORRY IF YOU RECEIVE THE YELLOW SCREEN BECAUSE YOUR EXAM HAS BEEN SAVED TO YOUR LAPTOP'S HARD DRIVE. If your final screen color is yellow and you intended for your exam to be saved to the network, note that and the problem described on the screen (network, flash drive, or both) on your flash drive bag and then turn in your flash drive to the proctor. If the screen indicates an error saving to your flash drive, ask a LawIT staff member in your classroom for assistance.
Important NotesRented or Borrowed Laptops:If you are renting or borrowing a laptop to take EBB exams, please see an IT staff member to move all exams taken on that laptop to the network before returning the laptop to its owner or vendor.Pay attention to e-mail sent from the Records Office:If there is a problem printing your exam, the Records Office will notify you via e-mail and/or phone the same day to bring your laptop in for exam recovery.
While we strongly encourage you to test EBB before you take an actual exam, do not type anything you want to read after you finish your test exam. EBB exam files are encrypted and you will not be able to decrypt them.
