Exam Taker Information

A quick word regarding digital testing platforms in the College of Nursing. (Please read before purchasing a new or different device.)

We strongly recommend confirming the computer requirements for your courses in the respective syllabus. Although the official testing platform for Undergraduate Programs is
ExamSoft, other testing platforms and remote proctoring solutions may be your Professor's preference. 

Chromebook compatibility is currently problematic, and iPads are effectively incompatible with Lock Down Browser. Most newer Windows laptops as well as MacBooks are compatible
with all platforms; however, older devices may no longer be compatible. 

Students, faculty and staff are able to order Dell PCs and Apple Macintosh computers at a discount for personal use. More information about this can be found on this ETSU webpage:

Hardware and Minimum System Requirements:

Current information regarding Minimum System Requirements for Windows, Mac, and iPad may be found under the links near the top of this page.

Apple devices of a certain age are ineligible for further updates. If you are using an Apple device that remains eligible but has not been updated more than three (3) cycles out, you may contact Apple Support (https://support.apple.com/ | 800-275-2273) regarding an OS update to a newer version of iOS/MacOS


For best results on exam day: 

  • Download the exam as soon as it is available
  • Your device should be fully charged, updated, and the current version of Examplify installed
  • Have your ExamSoft login information readily available
  • Close all applications (e.g., DropBox/GoogleDrive/OneDrive; Excel; Netflix; Power Point; Spotify; Teams; Word; etc.) and disable
    antivirus/antimalware software (set to re-enable with restart or at least for a period greater than two hours) in addition to any
    dialogue windows or system notifications before launching Examplify
  • Mute or set volume to zero
  • Login to Examplify at least five to ten minutes before the exam scheduled start time to confirm your device is working properly
    and Examplify is functioning as expected
  • iPad Users: after downloading the exam, place your device into Airplane Mode. After inputting the exam password, select 'yes'
    to place the iPad into Single Application Mode. To submit your completed exam, turn off Airplane Mode.
  • Windows Surface Users Using Bluetooth Keyboards: Disable the touch-screen before launching Examplify
