  • While you are taking the exam
    • There are two features that may be helpful if you get "stuck" on a question.  On each question, you will see a box in the top left corner with options to "pin for follow-up" or "my notes".

      • Pin for Follow-Up - By checking this box, you can earmark a question for follow up.

        • Once you have completed your exam questions, you will have a chance to review "pinned" questions before you submit your answers.



      • My Notes - Click the "My Notes" button if you are not sure about an answer and want to jot down your thoughts as you move on to the next question.



        • Once you click on the "My Notes" button, you have some "virtual scratch paper" to record your thoughts.



        • When you have completed the exam, you will have a chance to review your "My Notes" prior to submitting your exam.  On the "Submit answers" page, questions that have notes will be identified by a 'notes' symbol.  You can click on that to return to the question (& your notes) or choose to submit your answers now.



  • Archive
    • If you find that your "Training Activities" page is too long or full of courses, you can use the "archive" feature to keep your information available, but not only visible when you want to see it.



    • From your Training Activities page, click on "Archive".
    • This will hide the exam/course from your page.  When you want to retrieve that information to print your certificate, review results or other, click on "View archive" from your "Training Activities" page.



    • You will then see the exam/course and all options.



    • If you want to return the exam/course to your "Training Activities", click the "restore" button.
