Students taking exams at Cizik School of Nursing (CSON) will use a version of ExamSoft's test-taking software called Examplify. Examplify provides a more secure offline testing environment that makes it easier for both faculty members and students. To prepare you for a smooth testing day, we ask that you read all of the information below.
Before arriving on campus, complete the following items:
Step 1: Watch the Examplify Videos
These short videos explain how to use Examplify to download, launch, take, and upload exams. Please review the video and the instructions on Exiting Examplify and Windows after an Exam to familiarize yourself with the exam taking software and proper application and Windows shutdown.
Step 2: Access and Reset your Examplify Password
Prior to your first exam, you will receive an account activation email that contains your user ID and information on how to reset your Examplify password. In your UTH inbox, find/locate the email with the subject line "ExamSoft Account Active (May Require a Password Reset)".

The link in the email will take you to the password reset page. Enter your UTH Email and click Send.
