Steve (and all),
I hope that it was a contracts exam, and the student wanted to expand an answer on estoppel.

We are 4 days in and 500 exams typed. Regarding tech support, not much to report. Maybe 5 students have had the shut down mid exam issue. A dozen or so Mac users freeze on exit/upload. This is resolved by re-start.

Administratively, we had students who downloaded exams with SoftTest (which didn’t expire) and I had to re-enable downloads when they installed Examplify. We also had a first this morning, a student thought the exam was over and shutdown and submitted. After realizing they had an additional 30 minutes, they wanted the exam opened. We didn’t do that.

The majority of our "issues" are students who somehow forgot to uninstall SofTest then use that software only to get stuck in exam limbo.  We were under the impression that the software was no longer in use and that students had heard our pleas to remove the software.

The other set of problems exist when starting up Examplify, the students are met with an error message indicating that the application is not functioning properly and that you need to contact the administrator.  A quick uninstall/reinstall of Examplify has been the go-to fix for this issue.

So, how has the rest of the week gone for everyone as far as Examplify is concerned?
