Clearing Browser History

Clearing your history/cookies from your web browser is essential when using online forms with students.

For example, if you access an online form with your own netID or a student's netID, the next time you use the form their information will still be entered. You need to clear this information before you try to submit the form again.

Please note that clearing your history will delete all of your saved passwords and user names, so IF YOU DON'T KNOW all of the user names and passwords saved in your history, you must obtain that information BEFOREHAND in order not to lose it during this process.
