Exam4 Practice Test Deadline for Fall 2014 Final Exams Is Tonight!

Exam4 for Fall 2014 final exams, including Professional Responsibility, is now available to download and install.

  • The deadline to submit an Exam4 practice test to qualify to use your computer on Fall 2014 final exams is 11:59 PM EDT, Friday, October 24, 2014.
  • All previous versions of Exam4 have expired, will not run, will not work, and will not help you.
  • Exam4 no longer supports 32-bit Mac, Snow Leopard. Mac users with 32-bit Snow Leopard (OS 10.6) will need to purchase a new laptop or rent or borrow one for laptop testing and finals if they intend to use Exam4. You may follow these instructions to determine if you have 32- or 64-bit Snow Leopard.

You must always:

  1. Download and install the current version of Exam4 for your computer's operating system. Supported operating systems are listed here.
  2. Take and submit a practice test (choose "F14 Practice Exam" during start-up).
  3. For practice tests, identify yourself in the Exam Number field (twice) with your ULink user name (e.g., lhoswa01).

You must never:

  1. Ever, under any circumstances, identify yourself in Exam4 (or any other exam situation) using your UofL Student ID Number. This applies to practice tests, real exams—everything.

Within about an hour, you should receive a confirmation e-mail at your CardMail address. If you submit a practice test and do not receive the confirmation e-mail, then you have done something wrong and you must try again until you do.

Complete, detailed instructions for taking and submitting a practice test are here.

Students are reminded that, in order to use Exam4 to take final exams, they must comply with the Brandeis School of Law's Policy and Procedure Governing Examinations on Computer, including satisfactory completion of a practice test by 11:59 PM EDT, Friday, October 24, 2014. Last year, the law school faculty discussed and re-affirmed the law school policy that students who fail to complete a satisfactory practice exam in accordance with the rules established by the IT department MAY NOT use their computers to take final exams, and that, should a student use a computer on a final exam in violation of this policy, that student will receive no tech support during or after the exam, including but not limited to help re-booting or restoring an Exam4 session OR assistance uploading an exam or partial exam that the student may have written using Exam4. In addition, a letter describing the student’s violation of law school policy will be placed in the student’s record. This policy may result in your being unable to turn in part or all of your exam answers, should you fail to complete a satisfactory practice test. Deans on Duty and IT staff on duty have been advised of these policies.

Please do not risk failing an exam! If you have not received a confirmation e-mail, DO NOT use your computer to type your exam. Bluebooks are available from the Law Resource Center or the Dean on Duty.
