To run EBB effectively, your laptop must meet or exceed the following minimum hardware specifications:
When you are done with your exam, click the Finish Exam button at the bottom of the typing screen, or press Ctrl-F. 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 2 copies on your 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 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. The LawIT staff will work with you to recover your exam answer from your laptop, the network, or your flash 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 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.
