A test item may be left unanswered for return later in the testing session. Items may also be bookmarked (flagged) for later review by clicking in the blank square to the right of the Time button. Click on the double arrow (>>) or select the NEXT key to advance to the next unanswered or bookmarked item on the examination. To identify all unanswered and bookmarked items, repeatedly click on the double arrow (>>) or press the NEXT key. When the examination is completed, the number of test items answered is reported. If not all items have been answered and there is time remaining, return to the examination and answer those items. Be sure to provide an answer for each test item before ending the examination. There is no penalty for guessing.
Online comments may be provided for any item by clicking on the button displaying an exclamation point (!) to the left of the Time button. This opens a dialogue box where comments may be entered. Comments will be reviewed, but individual responses will not be provided. NOTE: the time to make comments will be counted toward the test time, and no comments are acceptable as answers.
