This is a guide to participants. Read the guide before you participate in a FLOWlock based examination. Available tools and features will be explained in the following guide.
1. Toolbar: In the toolbar you can design your text as you would with any normal text editor (e.g. Word). Design possibilities include: Select text block types (e.g. Headline or Paragraph), insert tables, make lists, and disable/enable spellcheck and choose language (if allowed by manager). For an introduction to the features of the toolbar, we recommend that trying out the FLOWlock participant demo.
2. External resources: If allowed by the manager, you can view specific external resources during the exam. According to the settings set by the manager, you can access PDF-files from the computers local storage and/or specific links to domains (e.g. "www.google.com"). For external links, you are locked to the specific domain so that you cannot access embedded links on the page, only if they are within that domain.
