Examsoft and OSX 10.11 El Capitan

At this time OSX 10.11 El Capitan is not compatible with Examsoft.  They released the following announcement to all Examsoft Administrators:

Dear Administrators, 

With any new Operating System, ExamSoft begins actively testing SofTest on the new OS’ beta version a few months prior to the official release date. Even with early testing, it can take up to two months post-release to fully address any issues and announce support.

As you may know, El Capitan (OSX 10.11) was released to the public today by Apple. At this time, we are unable to announce official compatibility due to a vulnerability identified during our testing. We are working on resolving this vulnerability, however we will be preventing students from downloading or registering SofTest on a device with El Capitan until this issue is addressed. We recommend you notify students to refrain from updating to El Capitan until an official support announcement has been made.

We will keep you updated as we near making an announcement. We appreciate your patience as we work on ensuring that SofTest remains secure on all platforms. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to our Support Team. 

Thank you, 
ExamSoft Operations

Examsoft and Windows 10


At this time Examsoft does not officially support Windows 10.  I received this message below from them today.  If you have any questions, please contact law-support@uakron.edu.  I will keep everyone updated.  Thanks!!



Dear Key Administrator,

Microsoft recently announced that it will officially release its newest operating system, Windows 10, beginning July 29, 2015. They have announced that this will be a free upgrade for existing Windows users and that users can begin to reserve their update now.

Please note that ExamSoft does not support Windows 10 at this time. Our team of skilled developers and quality assurance testers are working to certify a version of SofTest to be used with Windows 10, however in the mean time, please DO NOT UPDATE your device. We will continue to communicate directly with the ExamSoft Administrators at your institution on our progress.

If you have any concerns, please feel free to contact our Exam Taker Support Team.
Thank you,

ExamSoft Support Team


Room Availability During Exam Week

In an effort to provide more study space for students, we are making available to you the times that each of our classrooms is available for your use. There will be no official process by which you will be able to reserve these rooms, and availability is subject to change without notice. Additionally, if you choose to study in one of these rooms, please be out by the time it is marked as unavailable (blacked out). If needed, the Dean’s Office may need to ask you to leave a classroom at any time.

Please note: This is informational only. We will not reserve classrooms for study use. If you find one that is available and empty, you are welcome to use it. You must, however, vacate the room in plenty of time before it is marked as unavailable.

The sheet for each room will also be posted at the door of the classroom, and every effort will be made to update the sheets posted at the door. The copy that is posted here will not be updated, so please defer to the sheets posted at each door.  Please click on the link below to view the room availability sheets.
