About Exam4 and Student ID Numbers

In spite of training during the 1L year, regular announcements, information on our Web site, and policy, instructing students to always identify themselves on Exam4 practice tests using one's ULink user name (e.g., lhoswa01), some students continue to use their UofL Student ID Number, instead.

In the over ten years that the Brandeis School of Law has permitted students to take exams on computer, we have never required, asked or wanted students to identify themselves on any practice or real exam using student ID numbers. We never have, and we never will, so I am completely puzzled about how any student ever understood that he/she should use his/her student ID number on any electronic exam, practice or real.

Last spring, with the introduction of the app on the School of Law's Web site, which automatically sends an e-mail confirming receipt of one's valid Exam4 practice test, it became even more imperative that students submit practice tests using their ULink user names, and only their ULink user names.
