The Associate Deans and the Registrar’s Office are primarily responsible for the administration of exams. Accordingly, their offices post the Exam Information content which contains everything from exam schedules, permissible materials, exam regulations, and information about finding your exam ID.
You must do the following before you attempt to download the exam software:
Note: The software will not be available until you swipe your Wildcard
Best of luck to all of you on your exams!
Be sure to test the software several times before your exams start. Select “Practice Exam” in the drop down menu for the course. You should “submit electronically” when you are finished to make sure your wireless connection is working properly.
Always click on the red “e” from your desktop to launch exam4. Vista users may see an additional turquoise blue icon with a red “z” in the middle which is the zipped install file. You may delete that turquoise blue file from your desktop.
This is a deliberate programming necessity of the exam software and not a bug. You may still block or highlight text and delete and use the backspace key to delete text.
Do not use answer separators unless you want to use word count.
Come outside of your exam room and get a proctor. Do not try to troubleshoot the problem yourself. You will get the time back that you lost due to you computer problems.
When Exam4 launches, it checks to make sure you didn't install any software that could interfere with the security of the program. This is necessary to make sure no one can cheat. This security check can take up to 2 minutes, but typically only takes about 20 seconds after you have taken your first practice exam with the software. We suggest you start writing your exam number on every page of your exam and reading the exam questions while the security check is taking place.
Students are required to check their email for several days after exams. If the registrar’s office did not receive your exam, the registrar’s office will send an email message to your law school email account asking you to upload your exam again. Open Exam4 and Select existing exam. Find the exam that you need to upload by looking at the file name (Exam ID_Date (YYMMDD)_Course-Instructor). Highlight that exam and click “Submit Electronically.”
