Examplify (Examsoft)

Examplify is an assessment program that enables exam takers to securely take examinations downloaded to their own laptop computers by blocking access to files, programs, and the Internet during an exam. 


The College of Nursing utilizes a product called Examplify by ExamSoft for taking assessments in the majority of undergraduate courses. 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 does not support using Examplify on computers that do not meet minimum computer standards.
