    Having now used the practice white board, I think it's as bad as we imagined. You cannot hold shift down to create a straight line. The whiteboard does not stay open when you go from question to question. The whiteboard overlaps the questions and answer selections - WHY is this not a split screen view??

    Dear NCARB,

    I tried the whiteboard tool for a couple of minutes and it does not compare to scratch paper in any way. The board needs to ask themselves what was their intent in allowing candidates the use of scratch paper. I believe that if they are honest with themselves about this, they could not support this new tool.

    I thought about listing the many aspects of the whiteboard tool that are not functioning correctly, but making a list implies that this is something that is fixable. It is not. Please do not let the tail wag the dog on this one NCARB. Please address the need for scratch paper through online proctoring, their must be more then one solution here.

    Dear NCARB,

    This whiteboard tool is not a replacement for scratch paper in any way shape or form.  It is unconscionable to accept money and administer an ARE exam with this whiteboard as a tool.

    The computers in my testing center are already so pathetically slow that the pdf's take minutes to load and reload, so I cannot even imagine what trying to use this whiteboard tool will be like.

    I will be promptly cancelling my last scheduled exam.
