Welcome Back Class of 20XX,

This is just a reminder that we will continue with ExamSoft in many courses this semester. The first assessment is scheduled for (Date and Time). The second assessment is scheduled for (Date and Time).

Based upon student feedback, I have created an ExamSoft Student Training Guide with:

1. links to resources that should prepare you for an ExamSoft session,

2. links to resources about how to use SofTest during a session (e.g., how to highlight), and

3. links to resources about tasks you may need to perform after an exam session (e.g., restoring desktop on your Mac computer).

Please review this training guide very closely and let me know if you have any questions. I will enable a Mock Exam before (Date and Time) that you should complete before (Date and Time). The password is (Password). This will allow you to test your laptop before the assessments on (Date and Time) so that you can identify any problems and report them to the administrator or contact ExamSoft Technical Support at (866)429-8889. You will be able to download this file up to 250 times during the spring semester to familiarize yourself with the features and functionality of ExamSoft.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
