Exam4 Practice Test Tip

Tip #2: If you do not receive, or have not received, an e-mail like the one pictured below at your CardMail address within about an hour after submitting your practice test, you did something wrong. Try again following these instructions.

Exam4 for Mac OS 10.9 (Mavericks) Now Available

The law school IT Department received notice late Tuesday night, Nov. 12, from Extegrity that it now had a version of Exam4 for Mac OS 10.9 (Mavericks) available for testing and release. IT staff downloaded and tested this version of Exam4 Wednesday, Nov. 13, and Extegrity has now made it available on its Web site.

Exam4 Practice Test Tip

Tip #1: Never, ever, under any circumstances, identify yourself in Exam4 (or in any other exam situation) using your UofL student ID number.  This applies to practice tests, real exams -- everything.

Never.  Don't do it.

On Exam4 practice tests, use only your ULink user name to identify yourself in the Exam Number field. For example, in the illustration, below, Lee Harvey has identified himself correctly with his ULink user name, lhoswa01. Good job, Lee Harvey! If you do not use your ULink user name, you will not receive the confirmation e-mail:

"lhoswa01" + "@cardmail.louisville.edu" = complete e-mail address and successful confirmation message.

Classroom Printer Once Again Duplexes

In the continuing saga of the reluctant printer, following a sucessful part replacement, the classroom printer has now also had it's duplexer reinstalled so it will once again print on both sides. We will continue to monitor it's behavior; if you encounter printer issues please create a ticket at http://www.law.louisville.edu/it/helpdesk/  or email uofllawit@louisville.edu and include pertinent information relating to your issue.

Update on Exam4 and Windows 8.1

The IT Department received a notice from Extegrity this morning (10/11/13) reminding students NOT to upgrade to Windows 8.1 until Extegrity announces Exam4 support for it and clarifying information about how Window 8.1 will be distributed.  For awhile, rumors had suggested that Microsoft would push Windows 8.1 to Windows 8 users as an update.  However, current statements from Microsoft now indicate that users will have to manually download Windows 8.1 from the Windows Store, as the upgrade is expected to exceed 2 GB.

This notice is good news for Windows 8 users, who previously had to be concerned that Microsoft might unilaterally and surreptiously upgrade their operating system via Windows Update.
