ExamSim Player Help and Tips



Screen Size:

The program opens a window that is 1024 x 768. If your maximum screen size is less than the program size in either dimension, part of the program will be cut off. To resize your computer screen you will need to open the Control Panel and find Display Settings. The Control Panel is usually accessible from the Windows Start menu. If a height of 768 is the maximum screen setting possible, you might want to move your windows taskbar to a side of the screen so that the bottom of the program will not be hidden.


Taking Exams:
  • The exams are timed (like the actual exam)
  • It is possible to stop an exam and return at a later time. This is achieved by clicking “End Exam” before the end of the allotted testing time expires and then choosing “Return Later.” Upon return, the exam will bring you back to the question last question you were reviewing.
  • The exam will be marked as “currently in progress” on the exam menu page.
  • Although it is possible to quit and return later, it is highly suggested that you take the exams in one sitting to better simulate an actual exam, and for better feedback from the analysis tool.
  • Each exam can be taken actively 8 times for a score.
  • An exam attempt is considered completed when either the allotted testing time expires or you choose “End Exam” and then “End Exam and Score” when prompted.


Exam Score Reports:
  • Exam score reports become active only once an exam attempt has been completed. You will not be able to see an exam score report if an exam attempt is currently in progress.
  • At the completion of an exam, you will be taken directly to the exam score report.
  • You can view the exam score reports for a completed exam at any time by choosing Reports from the main menu page.
  • The exam score reports can be printed.
  • If you take an exam more than once, the exam score report shows your results from the last exam attempt.


Reviewing Exams:
  • Once an exam is completed (either the allotted time for the exam expires or you have selected “End Exam and Score”) the Review button for that exam becomes active.
  • In review mode, you can see the exam questions, which choice you selected, the correct answer, and detailed explanations.
  • The review mode remains active even if you have used up all of your active exam attempts for a score.
