Take-Home Exams and Papers & Logistics

Take-Home Exam Information


Take-Home Exams are not in the Examplify software that you may have downloaded. The Examplify software is for In-Class Exams only. The ExamSoft website is where you will go to download and upload Take-Home Exams and Papers.

  1. Go to examsoft.com/nusl.
  2. To login, use your 9-digit NUID as your StudentID and the password that was emailed to you.
  3. Log in and click the “Courses” tab at the top of the page. You should see a list of courses. Click the appropriate class.
  4. Get your 5 digit Exam Number on the ExamSoft website.
  5. Write your exam and/or paper in a word processing program (or Excel if specified).
  6. The website will not populate your exam number. On the front page of your answers, you must include:
    • Your 5-digit exam number
    • Name of the course/Name of your instructor and the Semester & Year
    • In addition, you must number the pages in a footer.
  7. When you have completed your exam answer (or paper), return to the ExamSoft website to upload your exam.

Some helpful tips for Take-Home Exams:

  • On the first page, please include:
    • Your five-digit exam number
    • The name of the course
    • Name of your instructor
    • Term (Example: Spring 2021)
  • It is also helpful if you put page numbers in the footer
  • Do not include your name or NUID

What Do I Do If I Have a Personal or Medical Emergency?

If you experience a personal or medical emergency during the exam period which impacts your ability to sit for an in-class exam or to complete a take-home exam, you should contact the Office of Academic and Student Affairs at lawstudentaffairs@northeastern.edu as soon as possible to make appropriate arrangements.  Please note that documentation may be required.  To preserve anonymity on exams, please do not contact your professor.

How Do I Request an Extension for an Upper-Level Take Home Exam?

Extensions for upper-level courses can only be granted prior to exam week, and will only be granted in the case of emergencies or extenuating circumstances. You can access the extension form here. Do not attempt to get an extension in the course once exam week has begun and do not contact your instructor as that will compromise the anonymity. Extensions approved into the next quarter will result in the grade of Incomplete. You are advised to complete the course as soon as possible as experience has shown that students have difficulty completing course work once a co-op has begun. PLEASE NOTE: You must submit an extension form for Independent Study projects as well.

Exam Numbers and Login Information

Exam Number (aka Assessment Number)

  1. Your exam is an anonymous, randomly generated number assigned to you each term. Using exam numbers instead of names allows faculty to grade your exams blindly which allows for fair and unbiased grading.  You will receive a new exam number each term and these numbers will be imported into ExamSoft and Examplify by ASA.
  2. You can find your exam (assessment) number on the ExamSoft website. Once you have logged in to the website, click on the “My Account” tab which you can find by under your name and the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen.
  3. Your exam number will automatically be included in any exams you take using the Examplify software, but you must add it to any exams you upload using the web portal.
  4. Your exam number is not your NUID or your Husky Card ID!

Logging in to the ExamSoft Website and the Examplify Software 

You will receive an email with your ID and Password for ExamSoft.  The log in information is the same for both the website and the Examplify software.  If you do not see this email before the start of exams, please check your junk and spam folders and if you still do not see the email, then contact Erin Brousseau at e.brousseau@northeastern.edu.

My exam number is not working? What happened?

Every term you are issued a new exam number. Make sure you are not trying to use an old exam number from a previous term. See above to learn how you can find out your new/current exam number.
