Important Things to Know

  • You will need to download and register Examplify at the start of each academic year.
  • You should take a mock exam each semester to be sure that your laptop is in good working condition and works correctly with Examplify.
  • The exam files you download are encrypted and password protected.
  • Any attempt to disable or tamper with Examplify’s security features will be considered a violation of the Honor Code.
  • It is your responsibility to become familiar with the Examplify software and instructions provided by the COL and on the ExamSoft website prior to the start of your exam.
  • Exams will not be delayed, nor will extra time be given due to a problem with your laptop.
  • Exam Administrators will be in each exam room to instruct you and will provide the exam password. An ITSS staff person will be in the room to assist with launching the exam. A proctor will also be in the room for the duration of the exam.
  • After each exam, you’ll connect to AirOrangeX to upload your exams to ExamSoft. As soon as your internet reconnects when the exam closes, it will automatically push to upload.
  • If you have any problems re-connecting to the internet or uploading the exam after the exam, please stop in to Suite 215 for assistance.
  • ITSS staff members are available for assistance prior to the beginning of exam periods. Issues such as viruses, spyware, and performance problems should be addressed well before the day of your exam. It is unrealistic to expect longstanding laptop problems to be resolved on the day of your exam.
  • Do not uninstall Examplify until you receive your exam scores at the end of the academic period.


         What Should I Do on Exam Day?

  • Bring your power cord with you to the exam. ITSS does not have and will not provide you with a spare or replacement cord.
  • You may bring an external keyboard or mouse with you to use during an exam.
  • Arrive 30 minutes before the start of your exam, plug your computer in, turn it on, and follow the instructions provided by the exam administrator. Exams will not be delayed or suspended, nor will extra time be given because of computer problems or incorrect use of the software.
  • You are not allowed to leave the exam room 15 minutes prior to the exam until 15 minutes after the exam has begun. You cannot leave the room once you have picked up your exam packet. If you need to get water, use the restroom, etc., plan accordingly.
  • Once you retrieve your exam packet, all notes (hard copy and electronic) should be removed from your desk/desktop.
  • Do not start the exam until instructed to do so by the exam administrator.
  • Do not attempt to resolve any computer issues during an exam. Let the exam proctor know by raising your hand and he or she will contact ITSS for assistance.
  • Do not leave the exam room with the exam envelope
  • Do not discuss the exam with anyone outside of the exam room.



  • No labels
