Exam Day rules and after

Recommended Posts

Rule #1 - Don't talk about Fight Club - or the Exam!

Rule #2 - Don't talk about Fight Club!

 

Also for noobs / Members I will turn the forum off for posting until later on in the weekend - In general it keeps down on people "accidentally" posting exam questions!

Open up the Spam Thread. All of them are taking the test anyways so we can get a head start.

I am glad he was able to take easy breaths.  Not being able to breathe properly is not a good start to exam day.

Am I at least allowed to resolve some questions that I had difficult time with by myself, if we I remember some part of the questions?

Does it violate the NCEES's agreement?

Not on this site. In the privacy of your own home, locked in a room, and in the closet with a flashlight? Yes.

From the examinee handbook:

Quote
All NCEES exams are copyrighted works. Examinees are strictly prohibited from copying or disclosing
any exam questions, problems, or answers, orally or in writing. This prohibition includes not
discussing or disclosing any exam questions or problems on Internet blogs or chat rooms or through
any other means

All -

This exam period sneaked up on me (new job, lots of travel) so I took the easy way out and just made it where the "member" group couldn't see the majority of the testing forums - Sorry for any chaos as a result of this.. Normally I just close the forum for certain groups but leave it where you can still read it - but that takes a while so I just did it an easier way - based on the # of emails I got over the weekend that wasn't the best so I will put it on my calendar for April ;)

Thanks for sharing and this is why I asked the question. Hypothetically speaking, is writing an exam question from memory on a private notebook, not sharing with anyone else, considered copying exam questions or removing exam-related information from the exam room?

The first rule about fight club is you NEVER talk about fight club!

I would say yes. Because how can someone at NCEES actually confirm it was never shared?

If you're alone and fart in a closet, will anyone but you know it smells?

The way I read it, you can't even do it for personal reasons.

People get their tests invalidated every session for doing that sort of thing. Sometimes they face civil penalties. Why risk it with a possible grey area?

Aren't you the guy that spilled the beans and told me that I might need to do multiplication? :true:

Thank you for replying. Well, by your definition, the information is also stored in someone‘s brain memory, how would they actually sure it was not shared orally. 

It is not lawful to accuse someone of homicide just because this person wrote a book about a killer. Presumption of innocent is our basic right. 😁
