Laptop Computer Exam Instructions - Fall 2013

For the  Fall 2013 Exams, we are again offering students the opportunity to take exams on their laptop computers using special exam writing software. The software we will be using is produced by Extegrity and is called Exam4. The software works on Windows (Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8) and Macintosh (running at least MacOS 10.6) computers.

Although Windows 8.1 and Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks are now supported, we do not recommend doing any operating system upgrades until after exams.

For more information on supported operating systems and hardware, please go to Computer Exam Software.

Download Exam Software

The software is available for downloading at www.Exam4.com, starting Monday, November 25, 2013.

  • Click on "for Law schools."
  • Scroll down to Ohio and click on the University of Cincinnati link.
  • Fill out the brief registration form and submit it.
  • Download and save the software to your computer then click on the file you saved to begin the installation process.

If you downloaded the exam software for last semester's exams you will still need to download the latest version for this semester.

NOTE: To avoid any last minute problems, we recommend that you download and test the exam software on your computer before exams begin.

Exam Submission

Exams can be submitted by handing in your exam using your computer's connection to the College wireless network or on a USB flash drive. We will have USB flash drives that can be loaned out at exam time.

Exam Procedures and Software Guide

Please read the following documents carefully:

NOTICE: The College of Law is not responsible for any equipment failure during the exam and will not allot extra time to enable students to address equipment failure. Students who experience equipment failure must continue the exam by writing in bluebooks. Exam4 automatically backs-up your work for you every ten seconds; therefore, answers written prior to a malfunction should be recoverable from the computer's hard drive.
