The Tool Kit button in the upper left is of special interest because it shows how much time you have left in your exam.


The Tool Kit shows the time remaining in the exam, and allows you add an alarm timer. 

There is already one alarm set for you to give you a five minute warning before the end of the exam.  You can set your own alarms to help you track your time as you go through the exam.

 When the alarm goes off, you will see an icon like this at the top of the window: 

Dismiss Alarm


The "Adjust Text Size" at the bottom lets you adjust the size of the text in the question.
