Enterprise Portal: Add and Manage Exam-Takers for a Course

Exam-takers need accounts so that they can use Examplify and log in to the exam-taker portal.

Note: This article explains how to manage exam-takers for a particular course. Depending on your permissions, you also might be able to add and manage exam-taker accounts on User Management page. See: Enterprise Portal: Add and Manage Exam-Taker Accounts (User Management)

Create New User Accounts and Add Them to a Course

Note: If the ExamSoft accounts were previously created or imported for these exam-takers, see: Add Existing Users to a Course.
  1. Select the course and go to the Students tab. 
  2. Select Create Student.
  3. Enter the information:
    • Student ID: This needs to be unique for each exam-taker; the ID is used to log in to the exam-taker portal and the Examplify application.
    • Email address: ExamSoft sends an invitation email to help the exam-taker get started and sends various other emails, including exam upload confirmations and exam reminders.
    • Courses: (Optional) The current course appears here automatically because you already selected it from the My Courses page. If you want to identify other courses for this user, start typing the name of a course, and then select it from the list. Or select Browse All to see a list of all available courses. (On that page, you can scroll or search for courses. Select the plus button for each course to add, and then select Save.)
    • Lab User: When selected, this user can only use a lab device. Leave this option unchecked to allow the use of a personal device.
    • Non-secure: As an accommodation, you can select this option so that any secure exams will be delivered to this exam-taker without the security restrictions.
    • Extra time: As an accommodation, you can select this option so that this exam-taker has extra time during all timed assessments. To specify the amount of extra time to add, use the slider tool or text field to select a percentage from 100 - 400.
    • Time zone: Time zone is important so that exam times display in the student's local time.
  4. Select Create. An invitation will be sent, and the exam-taker will have 30 days to respond.
    Note: Exam-takers must accept the invitation and complete the Examplify registration process in order to be active within the portal and take their exams.
