SMART Lab Procedures
SIGN IN and SIGN OUT
When working in the SMART Lab:
- Each student must sign-in at the front desk with their U# found on their USFCard
- Each student must bring a spiral notebook and TI-30XA calculator.
- Students must sign-out when they leave the lab area.
It is preferred that NO cell phones be used during your time in the lab. Cell phones are to be in silent mode. If you need to answer a call, log off from your computer and sign out at the front desk so you can step in to the lobby to take your call. If you violate this policy it may result in the loss of lab attendance points for that week.
USF dedicated portal
Let the support agents know that you are using MYLABSPLUS. Agents may ask for a course ID which is found in the URL once you are logged into the course. Have your username, course name and instructor name available. Let the agents know how long the issue has been going on and what basic steps you have tried to resolve the issue such as clearing browser history/cookies/cache.
Pearson Systems Status
Check if there are any system-wide issues.
- Photo ID Card (USF or US government issued)
- BLANK blue or green book
- TI-30XA calculator (Except for Business Calculus)
- calculators may NOT be shared
- cover removed
- Reservation confirmation: printed or on phone
If you do not have any of these items you may leave to get one and return to take the test during the same testing time period but will not be given any extra time to complete the test. If you do not have the correct calculator you may choose to take the test without one.
CELL PHONES MUST BE TURNED OFF AND KEPT OUT OF SIGHT. If you are caught looking at a cell phone during the exam, you will receive a zero for your exam score.
You can NOT bring a backpack, purse, laptop, earphones, drinks, food, etc. into the testing area, so if you arrive with any of these then you will need to deposit them along a wall in the SMART Lab where their security cannot be guaranteed. You will be allowed to carry in a closed clear one-gallon (or smaller) plastic bag which must be placed under the desk and be out of reach. Any electronic in the plastic bag must be turned off.
Restroom Breaks? Raise your hand and someone will escort you; no additional time will be given.
Late? You may arrive late but will not be given any extra time.
Technical problems? For any technical problems during the test, raise your hand and report the problem to a proctor or staff member immediately.
END of TEST CHECK OUT:
- Turn in your blue book
- Sign out at the check-out table
- Retrieve your backpack/belongings.
