ExamSoft's SofTest Quick Overview

The UC Irvine School of Law ExamSoft page is located at http://www.examsoft.com/ucirvinelaw.

  • You must download and install the latest version of the ExamSoft SofTest product.
  • Please download your exam files before the day of your exams.
  • You should test your wireless and run a "Mock Exam" to make sure everything is working correctly.
  • You must complete the installation process before you report to the exam room. Students who fail to do so will be required to use Bluebooks.
  • Please note that if you don’t download exams by 12 noon the day before your exam in ExamSoft you will have no option but to use Blue Book.
  • Installation and testing of SofTest and computer help is available throughout the semester.

Take Home Module Quick Overview

The UC Irvine School of Law Take Home module is located at http://apps.law.uci.edu/takehome.

  • No software installation is required.  You simply need a web browser to access.
  • You will be required to login to the take home module using your UCINETID.
  • Once logged in, you should see a list of takehome exams that are available for you to take.
  • Unlike SofTest, once you download the exam the clock has started on that exam and you must upload your answer within the amount of time provided.
  • The system will not prohibit you from uploading an exam if you have passed the deadline.  The instructor will be notified that your submission was late.
  • You must create and upload your exam response in one of the following formats:  PDF, DOC, or DOCX.
