ExamSoft and Character Count:
We use ExamSoft to electronically collect the students’ responses, both essay and multiple choice. Usually, exam questions are delivered to the students on paper and they put their answers in the electronic template provided.

Here are videos geared specifically to students: https://examsoft.force.com/etcommunity/s/article/Examplify-Getting-Started-with-Examplify

In Examplify, the ExamSoft program student’s use to take an exam, “character count” is what appears to the student as he/she types the exam. Page or Line counts cannot be determined by the student. For information on converting page or line counts to character counts please see  Character Count Guidelines.
