Taking the Exam

  • Placement Exam Login and Password: Students must have their NC State-issued Unity ID and password register on the Moodle site. These two items are issued to students soon after students have been accepted to the university and entered their profile information into WolfPAW. For more information, see the websites below:
  • Accessing the Placement Exam:
    • A link to the NC State Moodle site is here.
    • Login on the left side of frame, under “Returning to this web site?” using your NC State Unity ID and password. Do NOT create a new account. Do NOT login as a guest.
    • The course “Chemistry Placement Exam: Fall 21 – Spring 22” will appear near the top of the link and an option to enroll will be available. Choose YES.
    • Please select “Chemistry Placement Exam: Fall 21 – Spring 22” a second time under the Topic Outline.
    • A description of the exam will appear. When you are ready to take your exam in 60 minutes, select CONTINUE.
  • Printing a Copy: You may print a copy of the CPE for your use during the exam if this is more convenient than viewing the screen. The copy must be destroyed after the CPE is completed (see Academic Honor statement). DO NOT however, close your browser – the CPE must remain open.
  • Browser Issues:
    • Some difficulties have been experienced when using Moodle with Internet Explorer. For more stable performance, another browser is recommended.
    • Do not close your browser window once the CPE has been initiated. Once begun, the exam must be completed in its entirety.
