  • Examination Software

    EXAMINATION SOFTWARE 'EXAMPLIFY' (BY EXAMSOFT)

    Examplify is the Law School's Official Examination Software;
    The former examination software (SofTest) was retired as of August 31, 2017. Students should not attempt to use SofTest, but instead, they should use the new testing application software 'Examplify,' which is now the Law School's official examination software. Examplify will offer students the same offline, locked-down platform that the former examination software had employed. Because Examplify will have a different look and feel, students are strongly encouraged to download, register and thoroughly test Examplify as soon as it is available, but at least 2 - 3 weeks before your first exam. This will give students ample time resolve any issues that may arise with running Examplify on your computer.
