Exam Software Update
COBE Computer Placement Exam Software Update Scheduled to Happen Soon.
The COBE Computer Placement Exam will continue to use the MicroSoft 2010 software version at least through the Spring 2014 semester. We will update the website as soon as we know when the exam software version will change to MicroSoft 2013.
The ITM104,5,6 CLASSES will begin using MicroSoft 2013 in Spring 2014.
We have been notified that all MyITLab licenses are now good for 14 days after the license is used to enter your student profile. Please be aware of the license duration as you plan the dates you will take your first exam attempt and if you need to use your 2nd attempt you will need to plan for a date within the 14 day license duration.
Exams are given on a walk in basis during the hours listed under Schedule of Exam Times. You do not need to sign up for an appointment. Tell the Computer Lab Monitors that you are taking the COBE Computer Placement Exam; follow their instructions and they will sign you in to start the exam.
Exams are on a computer available basis. It is in your best interest not to wait until the last minute to take the exam, a computer may not be available for you and the lab may be noisy. All computer labs are very busy the last week of classes or the week before any semester. Avoiding these time periods will be to your benefit.
Each exam section is timed at 40 minutes per section. Time is monitored by the computer. You may request your test scores at the end of each section exam. You may print your exam results should you want to do so. A score is 70% or above on each section required to pass. The exams do not show up on the student transcript for credit or grades as it is a placement/proficiency exam only. A pass score is recorded in a student’s file for prerequisite purposes.
Your test will only be recorded if you enter your BSU student ID number in the same box as your last name on your student profile. If you forget to enter your student number in the same box as your last name you will need to contact the IT-SCM Department in order for your exam scores to be recorded: firstname.lastname@example.org; phone 208-426-1181. Required information needed to record your scores is:
