ExamSoft has recently changed the way Mitchell Hamline students log into Examplify and the ExamSoft portal. Instead of using your student ID number and a randomly-generated password, you will now use your Mitchell Hamline email address and password to login. We believe this will ultimately simplify matters, but we are aware that students who have used Examplify will need to complete a few steps in order to use their email address. Complete the steps as soon as you can and if you need assistance you may contact ExamSoft support or Mitchell Hamline IT (see below).
- If you already have Examplify installed, double click the icon. If you are already logged into it, click Home Menu->Logout, then confirm you want to log out.
- On the Choose an Account screen, click Add New Account.
- Enter MHSL for the Institution ID and click Next.
- The next screen will announce that authentication is pending, and an internet browser will open, requesting your Mitchell Hamline email address and password.
- Once you provide your MH email and password, you will receive confirmation that you logged in successfully. Close your browser once you see this message.
- You will now see the normal Examplify screen, where you can download and take exams as before.
- If need to log into the ExamSoft portal to download Examplify, do not click the option to login with your ExamSoft ID. Instead, click the Login button, and you will be redirected to the Office 365 login where you will enter your Mitchell Hamline email address and password.
- Once you log in successfully, you will see the ExamSoft portal as before.
- If you receive an error message when trying to log into Examplify like this:
- Choose the option to copy the link rather than launch, and paste it into the address bar of an Internet browser.
You may need to copy it into an incognito browser the first time.
