Reminder: Exam4 Practice Test Deadline Is TODAY

Exam4 for Fall 2009 final exams is now available to all students.  Hardware and operating system requirements, and download and installation instructions, are posted at www.law.louisville.edu/it/exam-software-download.  Rather than downloading Exam4 directly from our Web site, you must now download it from Extegrity.  Exam4 is available for Mac OS 10.4 (Tiger), 10.5 (Leopard) and 10.6 (Snow Leopard), and Windows XP and Vista.  A Windows 7 version is not yet available, and Windows 7 will not be supported for exams until a certified version of Exam4 becomes available for it.

Any student who wishes to use his/her computer for final exams this semester (including 1Ls who used the previous version for Legal Research and/or Prof. Leibson's Torts I mid-term) must download and install the finals version of Exam4 AND properly take and submit a practice test by 6:00 PM EST, Friday, November 20.  A properly taken and submitted practice test identifies the student by his/her UofL user name (e.g., ldbran01) -- not by one's student ID number, or any other combination of letters or numerals.  To submit a practice test electronically, one must be on campus and connected to the University's wireless network.  The University's firewall prevents off-campus submission.

Any student who wishes to use his/her computer for final exams this semester and cannot comply with the practice test requirement by the deadline must contact the Associate Dean for Student Life before the deadline if he/she wishes to petition for an extension of the practice test deadline or exemption from the practice test requirement.

VERY IMPORTANT:  Any student who takes any exam on computer who: 1. has not properly taken and submitted a practice test, or 2. has not brought a USB flash drive to any exam, will be refused technical assistance by the IT staff, including, but not limited to, submitting a completed exam.

After the practice test deadline has passed, the IT staff will send an e-mail confirmation to each student who has properly and timely submitted a practice test.  In the meantime, you may check whether your practice test was received at www.law.louisville.edu/it/exam-tracker.  Any practice test listed on the Exam Tracker is presumptively o.k.

Update on 1L Exam4 Practice Tests

As of an arbitrary moment in time this morning (Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2009), the following four Exam4 practice tests were facially wrong:

  • 1594601
  • 3105
  • 3287
  • mafar01
None of these practice tests is identifiable by name with any particular individual.  If you are a 1L and submitted one of these practice tests, please do so again using your UofL user name (e.g., ldbran01) to identify yourself.  If you have already submitted a correct practice test, please disregard this, and thanks!
