Important Exam Announcements

  • 13 November 2020

The updated exam schedule, including room assignments and times, is posted on the Exam Information link on the TLS Intranet.  

 

If you are taking exams in-person before Thanksgiving, you will report to the assigned classroom at the designated time to take your exam.  There will be a proctor present to check in those students who are taking exams in-person.   Please make sure to have your student ID with you when you check in for your exam.   All students will be using the Examplify software to take exams but the ExamMonitor and ExamID features won’t be enabled for the in-person exams.   The proctor will provide in-person exam takers with the password to start their exams, and will check out those students upon completion of their exams.    

 

  • Rescheduled exams completed before Thanksgiving will take place at 9:00 am.  Those taking a rescheduled exam in-person should check in with Academic Services, in room 204, by 8:45 am.  Academic Services will send students taking rescheduled exams remotely the exam password information by 9:00 am.

 

After Thanksgiving exams are being administered remotely.   We are using the ExamID and ExamMonitor component of the Examplify software to check in and monitor students taking exams remotely.   Prior to taking exams all students will need to complete the Baseline Photo Mock Test (see instructions below) so that the ExamID function is set up for you.   The students will see that the ExamMonitor and ExamID feature is indicated when they login to take the exam on Examplify.  

 

  • All exams, including rescheduled exams, completed after Thanksgiving will be taken at noon CST on the scheduled exam date.  Academic Services will send all exam takers the password for the exam at that time. 

 

The functions of the software are the same for in-person or remote exams, with the exception that ExamMonitor and ExamID are used for remote exams but not for in-person exams (they are also not enabled for any take-home exams). 

 

  • If you are taking an open book exam you will be able to access your notes and documents on the desktop provided this access is allowed by the instructor.   Please make sure that you have saved any documents or notes needed for your exam(s) on your desktop.
  • Students may use blank paper as scratch paper unless specifically prohibited by the instructor.

 

ALL STUDENTS MUST HAVE INSTALLED THE EXAMPLIFY SOFTWARE AND COMPLETED THE BASELINE PHOTO MOCK TEST BEFORE THE EXAM PERIO

Exam Updates

  • 7 November 2020

Dear Students,

I hope you are hanging in there at the end of a long and stressful week (and semester). As we head into the last week of classes, I wanted to send you a few important updates regarding exams.

 

  1. As previously announced, if you are an in-person or partially remote student and you plan to take all exams remotely, please complete this form. Because of changes to the exam schedule, we are extending the deadline to complete this form until 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 11. We will be in touch to confirm that we have received this form after the deadline.
  2. If you would like to use the law school to take exams scheduled between Monday, November 30 and Friday, December 4, please complete this form by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 11. If you request space, we will notify you of your room assignments for these exams by Thursday, November 19.
  3. As a reminder, if your professor opts for an open electronic note exam, you will have access to electronic materials during the exam. THESE MATERIALS MUST BE DOWNLOADED TO YOUR DESKTOP BEFORE THE START OF THE EXAM.
  4. If you need to reschedule your exam for travel or other reasons caused by the new exam schedule, please set up a time to meet with me at Calendly.com/abigailgaunt.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks for your flexibility and understanding as we navigate the challenges of 2020.

Sincerely,

Abigail Gaunt | she, her, hers
