  1. Log in to your institution's ExamSoft Portal.
  2. Navigate to the course.
  3. Select the assessment. (In the Enterprise Portal, select the Completed tab, and then select the assessment.)
  4. Find the assessment in the table, and then select the View Results button. If the button does not appear, this means that the results have not been released.

Report Details

The report has several parts:
