Everything works very well and its really easy to operate. The functions are easy to use as well. Very straight forward. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I dislike the alarm notification for 5 minutes left during an exam. It should be changed to something that doesn't contribute to anxiety which is already high during an exam. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The ability to take exams on your own laptop or desktop wherever you need to. Plus it saves time on hand grading the exam and teachers can get your scores back quickly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Being able to complete exams online in a very secure manner. the program closes up all other applications that it is open on. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The biggest dislike with examsoft is that it is very delayed in apple mac OS updates. We have to quickly alert the students NOT to update until examsoft will be compatible with the new OS. There is a bit of a delay. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Some problems with examsoft is when not being compatible on ipads or chromebooks. There is also a delay in updates with apple OS. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like that you can use the program on a computer, Ipad, or phone. The application form of Examsoft is called Exampify. It makes it very convenient to use the software and take an exam. Also, I like the user friendly design and ability to add a password to unlock exams. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that you cannot use examsoft on just the internet. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

This software makes administering a test a much easier process than it used to be in the past. Also grading took more quicker and also analysis in exam results fair overall. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In this software I don't like the way exam is downloaded, you can delete it off the list. Also a calculator in the exam is a little bit difficult to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As a physician assistant student, I really love that we use ExamSoft because our professors are able to get our grades back to us very quickly. We can take an exam and have our grades back immediately with the immediate exam review option. I'm also a person that likes to cross out answers and highlight/circle/underline things on exams, and I was nervous about not being able to do this when my program switched over to ExamSoft; but it turned out to be even better than a paper exam because if I change my mind and want to un-cross-out something; I can do that without having to erase and make my exam look like a mess. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike about ExamSoft is that there is the potential for technical difficulties. In graduate school, our exam days are pretty high stress situations and I have had a couple of classmates run into technical problems that either shut down their entire device they were using or they lost all of their answers and had to go back and take the exam on a paper copy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My physician assistant program uses ExamSoft to test us, and it has cut back on the work for our faculty tremendously. We have very long clinical medicine module exams that we study hard for and want to know our grades right away. In the past; because they are so long, it would take faculty a long time to grade them and then go back and look at what questions may need to be thrown out--collecting that data from 50+ paper copies of an exam was time consuming. Now, the faculty have that information at their fingertips within seconds of us finishing the exam; and us students get our grades back much sooner. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

ExamSoft is extremely easy to use. We have to use it for our exams in school. No confusion, no troubles. Just open, download exam, and begin. I like the email notifications once an exam is downloaded or submitted. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The updates are slower for Macs, so sometimes we can't update our Macs until the newest version of Exam Soft comes out. That can be annoying at times. Especially since some other applications require the update. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

This software is very easy to use, I have tried it on a laptop and an iPad. They are very open to suggestions to make the software better and are easy to work with if problems are encountered. You can set alarms for various times during the test, such as when there are 10 minutes left or 5 minutes left. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

After a test has been taken or reviewed, it remains on the dashboard. The only way to remove this is by reinstalling the software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My program uses Examplify for exams. It allows for instant feedback, and the tests can be secure. The program disconnects devices from internet and does not allow other applications to be open during the exam. This program also allows for professors to see the statistics of the exam, meaning answers can be modified to accept multiple answers or the problems that are controversial can be removed.

What do you like best?

I like how exemplify allows users/test takers to cancel/strike out items that they determine are definitely not the answers. It helps with the exam taking process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not like how exemplify does not have an option for notes. For example, if there is a question - having a free space for where you can type out your thoughts. The font can be somewhat small, and on the end of the user, it cannot be changed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Exemplify is being used at my institution to administer and score examinations for students. It is an easy and accurate way to assess. It is also very objective, so there is no room for grades to be changed based on opinion. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

This product is extremely intuitive. Our faculty learned its functionality quickly and easily. Our favorite reason for using it is the time it saves us and reporting features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We really do not have any complaints or problems. Their support team is very responsive and we always get our questions answered and any issues resolved quickly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

You will not regret making this move. Because it is intuitive and provides immediate statistics, it saves much time that we are able to use for other responsibilities. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to bank our questions and assessments. We easily duplicate our exams and replace a certain percentage of questions for the next exam. Item analysis is instant and provides all the information we need to finalize an exam and then push and post our grades to our learning management system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

This program is very straight forward to use. There are clear directions, a convenient home screen, and a tutorial for introduction. There is an area on the home screen showing recent completed exams, and exams available for download. All exams can be reviewed after instructors approve them, and the question content can even be organized to help test takers understand areas that they performed strongly or weakly in. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The biggest con for this program is that is can take a couple minutes to start up. In addition, in the past there have been a few bugs that caused the system to crash. In order to fix this, must shut down the program, re-start the computer, and re-run it. However, ExamSoft has recently came out with an update, and since then I have not had any issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think overall this is a great product that is easy and efficient to use, gets the job done, and has good tech support. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The thing I like the best is that you are able to cross out answers in multiple choice questions. This is so helpful in narrowing down possible answers. I also like the idea of information security, being that you are not able to look at other files while having another exam open. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that the program sometimes has glitches and errors come up often when uploading documents. When retrieving documents/exams, sometimes the documents do not load quickly. I do not like when my exams crash in the middle, mainly out of fear that the work already completed will be lost. If there was an update to the software to prevent crashing and glitches, I would have little to no problems with the software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend trying the demo version before buying the full version just to ensure that the style of test uploading and taking is to your likeness. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Examplify helps solve academic integrity problems. It securely offers exam giving and proctoring services while ensuring that no other files can be accessed while taking the exam. I definitely have realized academic honesty increasing with the use of Examplify. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The variety of options that are available for font and editing make the software more accessible and simpler to use when writing longer responses to questions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The software is only available for a small number of laptops which makes it difficult to implement when applying it to large student populations. Making the software more compact and also more widely available would greatly benefit it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This software is good for what it is, but it still needs to be available on more computers and processing systems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ExamSoft helps keep track of high levels of exam responses and the exam id functions allow for mass anonymity allowing unbiased grading. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Great program for administering exams, love that there is the opportunity to include alternate format questions, i.e. hot spot, ranking the responses, grouping the responses, etc. Saves a lot of paper! Seems that it decreases the ease of cheating. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Very easily editable exam administering software that allows for lots of specifications in terms of question types, with whether you want to accept typed-in answers or some form of multiple choice. Running exams through also helps save time with grading as well. In addition, there are various monitoring functions that may be useful if one would want to ensure integrity during examinations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are some hiccups that come up from time to time with exam administration, such as with questions with attached images. These inconsistencies are due to compatibility issues which kind of need to be ironed out at an individual user level which makes administering exams less fluid. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It’s simple to use and has many good features. For example, you can strike through answers you know are wrong and flag questions to come back to. It’s possible to put charts and tables and attachements into the exams as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes you miss having a paper exam to write stuff on but it’s easy for teachers to give scrap paper which does help. Also it would be nice when we review an exam to not only see the questions wrong but right as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It's difficult to choose just a couple things that I like best about ExamSoft! 1-The options available for institutions who need to deliver exams/quizzes in a variety of settings are outstanding. 2-The analysis and reporting features are invaluable to schools looking to improve student outcomes. 3-Customer support is typically top notch! Some wait times exist, but students and administrators usually find the support line extremely helpful. 4-Response to customer needs. They listen to what we need the software to do and try to really understand the challenges we face in our settings. 5-The rubrics feature is outstanding! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

ExamSoft continues to improve the user experience for students and administrators. Some difficulty with earlier versions of the student platform freezing during exams lingers, but I've seen vast improvements recently. The administrator portal has some kinks to be worked out, and communication from the team at ExamSoft has been that many of those are being worked on currently. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're using ExamSoft to deliver secure, high-stakes examinations and more frequent, low-stakes quizzes to students on our higher education campus. The testing platform allows us to test large groups of students at one time. More importantly, the data we're collecting about student performance is informing efforts toward quality improvement and providing students with better feedback about their progress in a course or program.

What do you like best?

Allows for a safe testing application to lock-down the students' browsers and allows for knowledge to be tested without temptation of accessing outside documents/sources. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The software loads on individual computers at different rates. The students may not all begin the test at the same time depending on the amount of time the exam takes to load through the software on the individual computers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Be considerate of the fact that each computer runs the software at a different speed. The software should be tested on each individual computer before used for an exam or other purpose. Hold a practice assignment to allow users to get comfortable with the easy-to-use application and understand the features that are available to them to use (ex: calculator, flagging questions, countdown timer, etc). Also, closing down all open browsers prior to loading the assignment/exam through exemplify will decrease the time needed for the application to load. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Clean design and interface. Fairly easy to navigate and use. I like the colors used and the intuitiveness of the program. I like the amount of features it has to mimic a word processing type of application which helps in testing environments. I also liked how modern the whole application felt. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

User friendly, however it doesn't feel as if it's solid. Meaning that there are a few instances of delay or lag that makes the overall user interface feel a little less than reliable. Also when the program initiates and limits the Wi-Fi capability it feels as if the whole app is going to crash, in a testing environment this is a little worrisome although nothing adverse ended up happening. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Keep up with Apple OS updates please! It can create instances where students cannot utilize the program. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simple testing interface. Allows even limited computer users to use effectively. It is a good way to implement a uniform testing environment with an interface that users can grow to learn and navigate fairly easily. Going forward just cleaning up some of the lagging and update issues can bolster its marketability. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
