Important Examsoft Information

Hello,

The download period for exams is well under way.  If you have not downloaded SofTest and your exams, please do so as soon as possible.  This semester we are trying something a little different.  We are not putting a deadline on the download period.  In the past, it has proven to be a bad decision because students waited until the very last minute to download and had issues.  Please do not let history repeat itself.  Also below are a few things to remember about Examsoft.

  1. Most professors have a default of 10 questions on every Examsoft exam file that you download.  That means you could potentially have blank questions when you submit the exam or not have enough questions in the software.  If the latter is the case, then most professors ask students to just specify the number of the question within the answer.
  2. Do not leave the room after your exam until you receive the screen that has the green check mark congratulating you on a successful upload.
  3. Be sure to have your computer’s power plugged in.
  4. PC users will not have to input their student ID when starting an exam.  However Mac users will.
  5. Show up to your exam at least 15 minutes early.

If you have any questions, please contact law-support@uakron.edu or stop by our office.  Thanks and good luck with exams!!
