The newest version of Examplify has been tested and used on real exams at Mitchell Hamline and has performed impressively. The freezing and uploading problems several students experienced in December have been remedied by this newest update.
Examplify version 1.4.0 includes a number of improvements to enhance the overall exam experience for Windows and Mac users, as well as the addition of several new features:
- New and improved essay editor
- Improved performance to reduce freezes and crashes during exams
- Addressed multiple bugs to improve the overall user experience
- New startup process checks to ensure users properly close out of Microsoft applications
- A built-in capability to back-up student answers
For more information on these improvements, you can view the Examplify Version 1.4.0 release notes here.
It is crucial that exam takers update to version 1.4.0. This version of Examplify addresses many of the issues experienced during fall 2017 finals. It was communicated earlier that if you had Examplify installed it would automatically prompt you to update, but we have found this to not always be the case. Therefore, please download and install the newest version of Examplify either from the Mitchell Hamline ExamSoft portal (examsoft.com/wml) or here. You do not need to uninstall the current version, it will be updated and replaced during the installation. If you need assistance, please stop by the IT Helpdesk or contact us at (651) 290-6411 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
