Our online quiz will available this Sunday starting at 8pm PST.
You can start the exam at any time from 8:00 - 8:30. The test timer will

https://mylmuconnect.lmu.edu

Click on our class, then click on "Content" in the menu on the left.
The online test will not appear there until 8:00pm on Sunday.

Although the test is "open book" -- you are prohibited in getting help from, or collaborating with,
anyone else. This would be considered academic dishonesty and would be dealt
with per university policies.

Please use a computer with a direct, wired connection to the internet
(not a wireless connection). Wireless connections are more likely to
be interrupted. Normally, this does not present a problem. However,
for security reasons, if you lose your connection even momentarily, MyLMUConnect
(Blackboard) will not allow you to continue taking the test, and I will have
to re-set it for you.

I will be monitoring my email during the testing time window.
If you have any problems taking the test, email me immediately: memills@gmail.com



IF YOU LOSE YOUR INTERNET CONNECTION TO MyLMUConnect (Blackboard) DURING THE TEST:

If you lose your connection to the internet during the test, try this:

Do NOT close the web browser window.
Click the reload/refresh button on your web browser
If that doesn't work. try to re-login into LMUConnect immediately

If you can't re-establish a connection with MyLMUConnect, it will not allow
you to take it again until I reset the test. If this happens, email me
immediately and I will reset the test so that it will allow you
to re-take it.
