Shark Speak: Finals are coming up soon— would you prefer to take them online or on paper in person ?

“I definitely prefer to take finals – or any test for that matter – in person. I think, subconsciously, the structure of a classroom setting encourages me to perform better. Also, with an on-paper exam, you never have to worry about technical difficulties like the site freezing or navigating a new web page.”

   “I personally prefer online classes because it would take away some of the nerves I get during exams.”

“On paper in a classroom setting. I prefer to take them in class because I just get it out of the way without respondus or any other unnecessary things.”

Marielle Cayemitte senior, biology major


“I prefer online exams because I’m more calm when I’m in a comfortable setting. Also, It’s easier for me to space out what exams I have to take during that week. I wouldn’t have to have two within the same day.”
