  6. Depending on computer and browser settings, a dialog box will appear prompting you on where to save the file, or the file will be automatically saved in your Downloads folder (could be a different folding, depending on your settings).  Note where you are saving the file to. This file will be a zip file (DO NOT un-zip it).
  7. This file may now be saved to a flash drive, emailed to someone else, or saved on your computer for later use. 


** Note: GVSU email (Outlook) does not support sending zip files. It is recommended that you save the zip file to a flash drive if you are looking to transfer the test to someone else.
