Exam SCU LAW remote exam format is split into two types: OPEN/Non-scheduled and SECURE/Scheduled.


OPEN/non-scheduled means all exams are submitted via Examplify within a certain time window. You will receive a notice from the Law School Office of Assessment about the date and time when your exam template will be available for download along with a due date and time to upload your exam answer file.

SECURE/scheduled means all exams are submitted via Exampify within a certain time window. However, that time window to download the exam template and upload the exam answer file is scheduled for the same day. The Law School Office to Assessment will send out a notification on the date and start/end time of your Secure/scheduled exam.



Register and Install: You will receive an email notification from Law Student Services (MFlynn@scu) regarding your Examsoft portal credentials. You will need your 11-Digit ID and password contained in this email to register and install Examplify onto your laptop computer.




Run a mock exam: Once you have installed Examplify on your laptop computer, you will want to run a mock exam to make sure your Examplify version is working correctly and to test drive Exampify's features and tools




REMOTE OPEN/NON-SCHEDULED: For example, the Law Office of Assessment has notified you that your Con Law final is a SECURE exam scheduled on December 3, 2020 and your exam template for Crim Law is not available until 9:00am PST on December 3, 2020 and have the upload due date is December 5th at 9am PST. As an exam taker, you can refresh your exam list any time after 9:00am PST December 3, 2020 to download your Con Law exam final template. You have until December 5th at 9am (PST) to upload your exam answer file via Examplify. If you submit your exam answer file after the due date and time, then your professor may decide to mark your exam as incomplete so plan accordingly and read your exam instructions very carefully.
