ZEUS FORM: You MUST bubble in the following information on your Zeus form exactly, or your test will not be graded!!!"Course Sort Number:: 14583 "Test ID Form" AA Test ID NO." 01, and you must bubble in the LAST 5 digits of your SS# (student #) in the format 0000####, where the #'s represent the last five digits of your SS #. Of course, you are to also bubble in your name. Save this sheet!!
