There is a Mock Exam available for download with SofTest. The mock exam is used to test your installation of SofTest, and to practice using SofTest.

The Mock Exam does everything the real exam does, with a few exceptions:  The Mock Exam does not have a password.  You can use any four digit number to start the mock exam.  You don't get graded on what you write in a mock exam (the mock exam does get uploaded to Faculty Support, so don't write anything you wouldn't want someone to read). Sometimes the spell check is enabled on the mock exam.  The spell check is always disabled on the real exam. 

Note: The mock exam files are for testing the SofTest program, and for practice, only. They may not be used to take a real exam. CWSL will not accept any exam taken using the mock exam files. Any exams taken using the mock exam files will not be accepted, and will not be graded.

The Mock Exam file for this year is Mock_Exam_2015-2016_EssayOnly.xmzx 

You can download this file more than once, and use it for practice.  Use any four digit number for the exam number.  We strongly recommend that you run a mock exam a day or two before your first exam, and use it to practice with the SofTest word processor so you are familiar with the word processor before you use it on an actual exam.

If you have any questions about using the mock exam files, please contact your computer technician:
