Be careful with scroll wheels in exams
Please be careful when using scroll wheels while doing WebCT exams. Make sure it doesn't change your answers.
Many people use the scroll wheel on their mouse to scroll a web page up and down. However, the scroll wheel can do other things to your pages, especially when using forms (like when you complete an exam in WebCT).
For example, if you have a question with a dropdown list, using the scroll wheel could change which item in the list is selected. In other words, it changes the answer to your question.
If that happens, change the answer back again to the correct answer, then REMEMBER TO SAVE YOUR ANSWER. If you don't save the answer again, then WebCT will remember the OLD WRONG ANSWER and that will be what's recorded on your exam.
