The Cizik School of Nursing (SON) uses Examsoft for on campus exams and quizzes. Examsoft is a computer-based exam suite that allows users to create, administer and grade assessments.
The ExamSoft software is made up of the following components:
- ExamSoft Portal – application used to build question pools, create exams, post an exam for students to take, monitor an exam while it is being taken, and process exam results
- Examplify (installed on desktop or laptop) – the application used by students to take exams
CEIR provides support to both faculty and students in using Examsoft, including training and troubleshooting.

The SON has a campus-wide license for Respondus 4.0, a Windows-based authoring tool that makes it easy to create and manage exams for off campus testing. Respondus 4.0 allows instructors to import questions from ExamSoft, Word documents, and other formats to create a Canvas quiz. Instructors wanting to use Respondus 4.0 should submit an MSIT ticket requesting the installation of the software on their desktop computers, and contact CEIR.
