Electronic Exams

All students who plan to take an electronic final exam must register and download the latest version of Exam4, the School of Law's electronic exam software, every testing period.

We strongly recommend that you download the exam software no later than a week before your first exam. This will give you time to determine if you have a problem with your laptop or with the program that you need to resolve. Students who encounter difficulties using the Exam4 software during the exam period should expect to handwrite exams.

The user interface for both Windows and Mac are now the same. The only operational difference between a Mac and Windows laptop is you must supply the Mac laptop password to install the Exam4 program, turn the Wireless network connection off prior to using in the Closed and Open modes, and then to turn the Wireless connection back on so you may Submit Electronically.

This short video on Using Exam4 in Closed Mode uses a Mac for demonstration.

You must register and download the current version of Exam4 each semester to get the current course listing. Students should submit a practice exam every semester to ensure that the software will properly function on their computers.
You should take a practice exam in each assigned computer mode.

Please make sure that you leave enough time before the start of your exam to prepare your computer and take a practice exam. Student laptops connected to the School-of-Law network must have the latest Windows critical updates and updated antivirus software. Exam time is an especially important time to make certain that your computer is secure.
