SPRING FINAL EXAM PREPARATIONS

Spring Final Exams begin with early exams on 4/21 & 22, then the Reading Period (4/28-5/1), followed by the Exam Period scheduled 5/2-14. Here are quick reminders to ensure you’re ready for exams:

1. Register with ExamSoft: If you used ExamSoft for Fall finals or Spring assessments/mid-terms, you DO NOT need to re-register. If you used exambooks/bluebooks for Spring Assessments and now want to use ExamSoft, you do need to register here.  

2. Computer Clean-up:  ExamSoft Technical Support Dan Breuer can “clean” your computer in advance of assessments/mid-terms.  Look for him at an Computer Clinic in the Student Center during the Reading Period, or call him at (916) 739-7025, email him at dbreuer@pacific.edu or see him in the Library, to ensure that language translation programs, virus or malware software, wifi Internet connectivity, or lack of hard drive issues don’t affect you during an exam.

3. Download Exams: Look for emails sent out informing you of available exams to download (downloads a blank placeholder – we provide paper copies of all exams on exam day).

4. Mock Exams: Log into ExamSoft and take the available “Mock Exams” – nothing is recorded, but it gives you an opportunity to “see” the blank screen and features (spell check) well before exam day.

5. Exam ID Number:   Know your four-digit exam number before going into an exam.

6. Review Past Exams: Include reviewing previous course exams as part of your study plan – go here.

7. Computer Supplies:  Be sure your computer battery is fully charged, bring the electric cord, and bring/pack an external keyboard or mouse, if you like.

8. Exam Supplies:   Always bring a pen or two with you in case you end up or plan to write in exambooks/bluebooks.  Consider bringing highlighter pens as well. Contact the FSO with any exam/assessment questions at fso@pacific.edu. Good luck on your exams!
