The Examplify Word Processor

 Here we have the Examplify word processor screen.  This is a standard word processor.  We have marked a few items that you need to know about.

The Examplify word processor screen

 1 Here at the top right hand corner of the window, you have a clock. This is based on the clock in your computer.  Use this to keep track of how much time you have left.

 This clock here is a timer.  The school can use this timer to set the time allowed for each exam.  But we are not using this feature, and we normally set this timer to some ridiculously  large number.  So do not use this timer to see how much time you have left in the exam.

      
However, if you click on the timer, it gives you an "Add Alarm" button,   Click button to add alarm
 

You can use this alarm to set a timer for yourself.

For instance, if you have an exam that runs for three hours, you could set an alarm for two hours and thirty minutes, and the alarm would go off when you have  thirty minutes left.

Do not select "Before end of time".  We are not using the exam timer feature, and this would not give you a correct alarm.

 Use this window to set a timer alarm during the exam.

 Here we have your character count.  This will tell you how many characters you have used in this essay.

If you click on the little paper icon, it will give you more details about the number of characters used.

 This will give you a breakdown of the number of characters you have used.

 4 This is the formatting toolbar.  This has your standard formatting tools. If you click the § button, you get a list of symbols you can insert in the text.

 5 Finally, we have the question navigation buttons.  When you finish question 1, click the "Next" button to move on to question 2, and so on.  You can use the list on the left hand side to move back and forth between questions.  If you click the little flag at the top of the list, it will "flag" a question.  That is, it will mark the question so you know you want to come back and look at that question again.

 

When you are finished with your exam click "Exam Controls" then click "Submit Exam".
This will close out your exam and start the process of uploading your answer file.
Click Submit Exam to close and upload the exam.
