Downloading BlueBook

Midterm Date: October 25th, 2021


BlueBook

Please make sure to download and install BlueBook on your laptop before the quiz. Download links--as well as a guide to using BlueBook--can be found here. The exam will be closed-note, meaning you cannot use any external resources. We will provide a reference sheet like the one on the midterm review handout. BlueBook is designed to let the course staff know if you swipe away from the screen or access any other applications. Additionally, the honor code requires that the solutions you produce are your own.

A practice quiz that can be run on BlueBook can be downloaded below. This practice will be run under timed conditions, and give you an idea of what to expect for the actual quiz. The actual quiz may have more questions than this quiz. This is only to give you a feel for using BlueBook.

Should you run into any technical issues, shoot Juliette an email at jwoodrow@stanford.edu .

Note: BlueBook runs on Windows, macOS and Linux computers. If you do not have one of these computers (e.g. a Chromebook), please let Juliette know as soon as possible.


Practice BlueBook Exam



The problems in the above practice test are just exercises that will help you practice. They do not necessarily reflect the problems that will be on your midterm. They are more like placeholder problems to help you learn how to use BlueBook before your first midterm. For actual review problems, please check out the review questions on the midterm review handout.

Note: We unfortunately do not have a way for students to access their own submissions from the BlueBook practice. If you'd like to compare your answers to the posted solutions, please make sure to copy, save, or otherwise keep your answers before submitting. Apologies for some of the growing pains as we develop all of the functionality of our new electronic system!
