Chart providing additional details for your upcoming fall exams

Please note the following information:

  1. The column labeled “Secure” indicates the level of security that will be in place for your exam:
    – “Secure” means that you will not be able to access any programs on your computer other than Examplify
    – “Unsecured (no internet)” means that you will be able to access other programs on your computer, including outlines and electronic casebooks, but will not be able to access the internet.  Please note that the cut-and-paste feature will be disabled for these exams, which means that you will not be able to cut-and-paste text into your exam answer.  This includes not only text from other sources, but also text within your exam answer on Examplify.
    – “Unsecured” means that you will be able to access other programs on your computer, including not only outlines and casebook but also programs that utilize the internet (e.g., Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox).   Please note that the cut-and-paste feature will be disabled for these exams, which means that you will not be able to cut-and-paste text into your exam.  This includes not only text from other sources, but also text within your exam answer on Examplify.
  2. The column labeled “Examplify Required” indicates whether you are required to use Examplify when taking your exam.  Please note that you will be able to use Examplify to draft and submit your exam answer, even when it is not required.
  3. The column labeled “Zoom Info” indicates whether video proctoring is required for your exam.  If your exam is listed as requiring “Zoom Proctoring,” you must either connect to Zoom using a secondary device or take the exam in the assigned classroom (which will be videorecorded).
