Exam Support

Students will use their laptop computers or iPads to take many of the exams in the Geisel MD program. The Year 1 and 2 courses are transitioning to the ExamSoft assessment system for final exams and some quizzes. In Years 3 and 4 the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) subject exams (clerkship shelf exams) are delivered using the NBME's web-based assessment system. Canvas, the web-based learning management system, is also used routinely for quizzing.

The guides below provide details on using the ExamSoft and NBME systems. For quizzes and exams using these systems, Geisel Computing provides in-room technical support and can supply loaner laptops to students if the need should arise.
