Examplify: Review Your Results with Secure Exam Review

If your assessment is set up with Secure Exam Review, you'll be able to review the results of your assessment. This review can provide valuable insights about your performance on this assessment and can help you to prepare for future exams.

Note: Contact your instructor, proctor, or exam manager if you have questions about the options that are enabled for your exam.

If your exam-maker provides an opportunity for secure exam review, you'll access it in one of the following ways:


Immediate Review at the End of the Exam

At the end of the exam, you'll see a screen that shows your calculated score for the objective questions (excluding essay questions, which need to be graded). This screen allows you to submit your exam or to review your results. To review your results, do not submit your exam at this point. Instead, follow the procedure below.

  1. Select the Continue to Review button.


  2. When prompted, enter the exam review password.  


    Note: Be sure to enter the password correctly. If you enter the wrong password more than 3 times, you will not be allowed to see the review.

  3. Navigate through the review.
  4. When ready, end the review, submit your exam, and wait for the exam to be uploaded.


Delayed Review at a Scheduled Time

If the exam was set up with delayed review, your responses will be saved in an exam review file on your computer. On the date and time when the review is available, complete the following procedure to review your results.


  • You'll need an active internet connection to start a secure exam review.
  • If you attempt to start the review before the scheduled date, an error message appears.

On the scheduled date and time: 

  1. Start Examplify.
  2. Under Downloaded, select the exam review from the list.

    The word Review will be included in the filename, and the phrase Review Exam will appear below the filename.

  3. Enter the Exam Password (the same password that you entered when you took the exam).
  4. When prompted, enter the Exam Review Password (the password that was provided specifically for the review). 


  5. Navigate through the review.
  6. When ready, end the review.
