Important: don't open two WeBWorK windows or tabs at the same time while you're taking the test. It's safe to enter and leave a WeBWorK session (pushing the Grade button before leaving, of course), but it causes difficulties for the database for one certain kind of exam problem, if one is logged in twice.
The exam mode of WeBWorK, called Gateway/Quiz, has several differences from the homework mode:
After starting the test, you can either use the Print Test link on the test, or return to the WeBWorK "ast102f13" page to download a pdf copy for printing.
In the exam mode there is no Feedback button. However, you may still send the instructor email if problems arise on the test. Note that, since this is a test, the instructor can only answer questions to clarify, not to help lead you to the answer.
As usual, enter your numerical answers with at least three-significant-figure precision, except for problems for which the answer is a wavelength, in which case you should use at least five-significant-figure precision. To use scientific notation, write your answer in the form xxE+yy. It is important that you use a capital E; answers with a lower case e will be evaluated differently.
Every time you push the Grade button, you will get an update of which problems you have answered. WeBWorK will remember the best answer you submitted for each problem in your final total. If you submit an incorrect answer for a problem to which you haved previously submitted a correct answer, that problems points won't appear in that particular submission, but will appear in your final total. There is no partial credit possible on any of the exam problems.
The exams open at 12:00 PM (Eastern) on the test dates and close at 6 PM (Eastern) that same day. After closing time, anybody may download a copy of their exam, checking the boxes for "Correct Answer", and get a PDF with his or her own solutions and the correct answers. Or, alternatively, anyone can view their exam within WeBWorK, check the "Show correct answers" and "Show Solutions" boxes, and push the Check Test button, which will add their solution and the correct answer to the online display.
