The College of Nursing (CON) requires that all undergraduate students take their exams using a product called Examplify by ExamSoft. Examplify provides a more secure offline testing environment that makes it easier for both faculty members and students.
Students are required to download the Examplify software. Using this app, students will be able to download exams to take on exam day. Students will be required to download the exam prior to coming to class on the day of the exam. Internet access is required to download and upload tests.
The College of Nursing currently recommends only laptops be used with Examplify.
