SofTest is Now Examplify – Download the New Examplify Today

“I’m so excited it’s almost final exam season!” said no one ever… But even though finals might seem like a long ways away still, they will be here before you know it. And like your Crim Pro professor has probably already said, it’s never too early to start preparing for finals. Probably the easiest thing you can do to prep for final exams is to download the new exam software, Examplify, from ExamSoft©. Examplify is replacing our old SofTest program, which was also made by ExamSoft. 

Examplify has a number of new and helpful features, such as built-in spell check, SofTest used an outdated spellcheck wizard, and a new exam landing page and launch screen navigation. Now all you have to do is login and you can immediately see all of your available exams in the left-hand column, including exam-files available for download, ones you have already downloaded, and exams you have already taken and submitted.

Instead of having to go to a different screen to download your exams, then another screen to take an exam, and yet another location to review the status of your exam upload, now you can do it all right from your landing page.

For more information on how to navigate the new interface, check out ExamSoft’s helpful Quick Start guide for new Examplify users, or just log into examsoft.com/pepperdinelaw and download the program to see for yourself. It’s extremely easy to use! So what are you waiting for? Get ready for finals by downloading Examplify today!

Pepperdine School of Law allows students to use this software to take their midterm and final law exams. If you plan to use your laptop computer to take your exams, Examplify is required. The majority of students currently take all or some of their exams via this program.

Examplify can be downloaded from the Internet (http://www.examsoft.com/pepperdinelaw) and installed on your laptop computer. In order to use the ExamSoft Examplify program at Pepperdine University School of Law, you MUST agree to the terms of this ExamSoft Student Agreement

IMPORTANT: RETURNING USERS – If you have not taken an exam during the current term, you may need to re-register your software for the current academic school year. To do this, simply follow the same steps for installing the program for the first time. Login to the Examsoft website listed above, and click on “download” to accept the new academic year’s user agreement and download Examplify. Follow the prompts for the installation and when prompted, accept the new academic year’s student agreement again within the program and then follow the remaining prompts to install the latest version of Examplify.

Before attempting any exam, we highly recommend downloading and running a ‘Mock Exam’ within Examplify. This will help ensure the software is functioning properly on your computer prior to exam day.

Turn Off Your Antivirus BEFORE You Take an Exam with Examsoft

We’ve all heard the stories, perhaps you’ve even had nightmares about it happening to you. You’ve stayed up for the past 36 hours preparing for an exam, you’ve checked and re-checked your notes and then checked someone else’s just to be sure you hadn’t missed anything. You’re ready for this, you’re going to own this exam. You sit down and open your laptop, open Examplify, and then… everything goes dark.

No your computer didn’t just transport you into a galaxy-sized black hole, but the alternative is almost equally terrifying and just as inescapable… you’re going to have to use a Bluebook. As you sit listening to your classmates happily typing away at what sounds like 1000wpm, you wonder to yourself… “where did I go wrong?” Your mind frantically searches for any trace of what could have caused this tragedy, when suddenly, you vaguely recall ignoring a post on Lawtech that warned you of this very scenario. A creeping inclination begins to gnaw away at the edges of your consciousness… Could this all have been prevented if you had only read it?

The good news is, this was all just a horrifying Hypo. And yes, the possible outcome is easily avoidable.

Just turn off your Antivirus software before you open Examplify.

Various antivirus programs have been linked to several computer disabling issues when used with Examplify. These issues include black screens, computer freezes, and crashes, or my personal favorite, desktop background changes to an Examsoft icon. These issues can occur intermittently and unpredictably so even if you have taken a mock exam without incident, you may still encounter a problem during an actual exam. Don’t let this happen to you!

Just remember, before you begin your next exam, and believe me you have no idea how painful this is for a tech guy to say, please turn off your antivirus.

But don’t forget to turn it back on as soon as you submit your exam!
