How do I Troubleshoot Exam Platform Errors?

Sometimes errors happen in the platform - from screens not showing images, to students being kicked out of exams by the internet. Below are our best troubleshooting tips.

Common Errors:

  • Student unable to see questions, images, or answer selections
  • Student's exam has closed before they were done
  • Internet kicked student out of exam
