Import ExamSoft Questions

The PDF Exam Import function can take Exams presented in a PDF format and import them into the System's Exam module.  Once the PDF is received, we will parse the PDF.  While images, sound files and video do not automatically link to the Exam questions during the import process, you CAN manually link these files to the specific Exam questions after the import and within the Exam Editor.

Formats vary greatly, so you must select the correct options when you are exporting the Exam out of ExamSoft.

  • In ExamSoft, select the Print/Export function in the chosen assessment.
  • In the Print/Export window, select PDF and any other options that you need to be included.
  • Click Print/Export
  • The file will download as a .ZIP file.

If your Exam from ExamSoft is in a Word or DOC file, then Save As a PDF or print the DOC as a PDF in order to import into our System.
