Upgrading SofTest for Finals

Where has the time gone? Final examinations are HERE!!! Make sure you have version 11 of SofTest installed on your computer. To verify you have the most recent version of SofTest installed on your computer, please visit the ExamSoft website.

I used SofTest for midterm examinations. Do I need to download a new version?

Possibly. If you completed midterm examinations using SofTest, your computer should be ready for final examinations. However, if you have recently upgraded your laptop’s operating system, then you should update to the latest version of SofTest before attempting to download your final exam. As always, you should try a Mock Exam in order to verify SofTest is working properly.

How do I update SofTest to the latest version?

Even though you may be on version 11, you will want to verify that you have the most recent update to version 11. To trigger the SofTest update, first open the application on your laptop. The instructions are slightly different for users on different operating systems.

  • For Windows OS users, press the CTRL button and the letters ‘A’ and ‘U’ simultaneously (CTRL+AU).
  • For Mac OSX users, once SofTest is open, press the Command key plus the letters ‘A’ and ‘U’ simultaneously (CMND+AU).

For more information on this, visit the Update SofTest page on the ExamSoft website.

I downloaded the new version of SofTest, but now my exam is missing?

If you downloaded your exam prior to completing the upgrade to SofTest version 11 you MUST Reverse Download the exam.  There are separate instructions for Windows users and Mac Users.

I used SofTest for examinations last semester. Do I need to download a new version?

Possibly. If you used SofTest last semester, you should already have version 11. For information on verifying which version you have, see above. However, you must re-register SofTest every academic year with Pepperdine and accept the annual user agreement.
