How do Exam Takers go through the exam taking process (download, take, upload)?
Exam Takers must first download Examplify to the device that they will use for testing. Exam Takers can download Examplify using the directly link provided to them by their instructor. Exam Takers need to then complete the installation and registration steps (while connected to the internet). Once logged in, they will find their exam file from the Exam List and download their exam. Once the file is downloaded and it is time to begin the exam, they will open Examplify, select their downloaded exam and enter their exam password. After completing the exam and re-connecting to the internet, Exam Takers will see a green upload confirmation page. Please note that uploads should happen instantaneously provided the user has an active internet connection. but answer file processing may take up to 15 minutes. Please review our guide on Best Practices for Exam Takers for more information.

Does Examplify have capabilities such as magnify text or read out loud for students with disabilities? We offer extended time, spell check and non-secure accommodations for students. The non-secure accommodation allows for students to access the internet and/or external software that may provide necessary services for students. For more information on accommodation rules, please refer to this guide
