What type of info can I get from the query? Also, I feel as though I did not receive partial scoring for some partially answered questions. Any truth to this being the case?

Impossible.
This checkbox as you thought for only ease of use to review uncompleted
tasks and does not affect grading at all.
This is mentioned as a note in exam introductory information.

Got a new question. This was not on my test, but rather in practice labs. Set account expiry date for 90 days from now. Seems to me you can use 'usermod -e date', but Red Hat labs indicate the use of 'chage -E date' instead. Both methods set the 'account expires' in chage -l to the requested date. My question: If I use usermod, but Red Hat wants chage, do I get the question wrong?

Exams only care about the outcome, and are assessed automatically. Whether you use usermod, chage or edit stuff manually in  /etc/shadow, /etc/password it should not matter as long as the modification is done successfully.

Thanks for confirming that. I would hate to think I'm being graded on my process for getting to the desired result. After all, a reboot is a reboot is a reboot!

Hi, as per the email for taking remote exams it has been mentioned only one physical monitor allowed. so we can't use as extended monitor with laptop  if we need to use keyboard / mousepad of the laptop ?

Does that mean laptop connected to one physical monitor but laptop closed ? if that's the case need to use wired keyboard and mouse ?

  • Monitors: Only one physical display will be allowed for the exam.

If you are using the external monitor then yes you need to close the laptop
lid. And Ofcourse you have to use external keyboard and mouse- only wired
and no wireless allowed. --

Your interpretation is correct. I recently took the exam and used a closed laptop with an external monitor, external keyboard, and external mouse. I did run out of USB ports so I had to boot into the exam, remove the bootable USB flash drive, and swap in the external USB webcam. This setup worked well for me. Incidentally, the proctor was fully aware of my setup and whether or not the laptop lid was closed. Good luck to you!

Hi, I am re-taking an exam and i am wondering if I can just re-use the usb image I created for the first attempt?

I'm running a compatibility check and noticed that during the 'hardware compatibility' check screen the video looked normal and I was able to read my ID.  Then the next screen is 'streaming compatibility' where it asks you you verify your ID is readable.  On this screen both webcams (internal and external) had the video horizontally flipped.  However the ID was still in focus and legible.

Since the video appered forwards on the first screen I assume this has nothing to do with the webcam and is part of Red Hat's exam software but wanted to check if anyone else noticed this.  I would think the proctor can reverse the image or just read it backwards if necessary.
