take-home exam info
- Date-specific take-home exams:
- Available for download from the Exam4 website from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on the assigned date.
- The clock will begin to run as soon as you have accessed your exam via the Exam4 website. You must prepare and submit your response via the Exam4 software by the end your allotted time (set by your instructor) or by 11:59 p.m. on that day, whichever comes first.
- Anytime take-home exams:
- Available for download from the Exam4 website from 12:01 a.m. on the first day of the exam period to 11:59 p.m. on the last day of the exam period.
- The clock will begin to run as soon as you have accessed your exam via the Exam4 website. You must prepare and submit your response via the Exam4 software by the end your allotted time (set by your instructor) or by 11:59 p.m. on the last day of the exam period, whichever comes first.
It is important to plan your take-home exam start time accordingly so that you have your full time. For example, if you have an 8-hour specific-date take-home exam, and you start it at 6 p.m., it will still be due at 11:59 p.m., even though you have not used the full 8 hours. The same is true for anytime take-home exams - the final deadline to submit is 11:59 p.m. on the last day of the exam period, so be sure to start early enough to get your full time.
To the extent possible, we strongly encourage you to take your take-home exams during normal business hours, as Law School staff and the Law School Help Desk may not be available after hours.
All times are listed in Central Time.
Proctored exams promptly begin on the scheduled date at 10:00 a.m., unless otherwise indicated. We suggest planning to arrive to your exam room at least 15 minutes before your exam begins.
If "Yes" is listed in this column, you are required to use the Exam4 software, either because: (1) it is a take-home exam and all take-home exams use the Exam4 software; or (2) it is a proctored exam that uses the Exam4 Multiple-Choice feature ("MC feature") and you cannot opt to handwrite exams that use the Exam4 Multiple-Choice feature, because you must use the Multiple-Choice feature within the Exam4 software for all multiple-choice and/or true/false questions on the exam.
If "Optional" is listed in this column, you have the option to handwrite your exam OR use the Exam4 software to type your exam.
**Restrictions on hardcopy materials: Because take-home exams are not proctored, there are no restrictions on hardcopy materials. Thus, "n/a" is listed in this column for all take-home exams. For an explanation of the various restrictions on hardcopy materials, please visit the Proctored Exam Instructions page.
