The IU School of Medicine uses ExamSoft software to administer first- and second-year assessments as secure computer-based exams.

ExamSoft provides a web platform (called ExamSoft portal) for faculty and/or staff to create computer-based assessments and downloadable software (called SofTest) for students to take these assessments.

SofTest locks down the students’ computers during the test so that they can’t access their notes, other programs, or the internet. For faculty, the ExamSoft portal provides convenient ways to create question banks and exams and provides robust ways to analyze results and improve future assessments.
