ExamSoft Software and the Examplify Interface

What is ExamSoft?

ExamSoft is the examination software used by many law schools and state bar examiners, including Caruso School of Law and the State Bar of California. ExamSoft is a computer-based program that enables secure testing on student laptops by blocking access to programs, files, and Internet usage during exams. Caruso Law students use this software to take exams through the installation of the Examplify application.

Exemplify Basics for Caruso Law Students

  Examplify Registration

Examplify login credentials are e-mailed to Caruso Law students before every midterm exam period and then again before every final exam period. (Please check your e-mail spam folder if they do not appear in your inbox.) Use these credentials to log into the Examplify portal to download, register, or re-register the Examplify interface on your laptop. Note: Examplify login credentials are different from your Pepperdine NetworkID credentials.

  Exam Downloads

Approximately one week before your exams, an e-mail notification will be sent to download your exams.  Please download your exams as soon as they become available.

  Mock Exams

To ensure the optimal performance of ExamSoft on your laptop, it is strongly recommended that students take a mock exam before midterms and finals each semester. Once you are logged into Examplify, a "Mock Midterm Exam" or "Mock Final Exam" will be available to download.  Students can take as many mock exams as desired.
