DigiExam has taken the place of "Exam Accounts" at the Upper School. DigiExam allows teachers at the Upper School to administer an online exam to students, while preventing the test taker from leaving the DigiExam application. The application allows for Text Responses Questions (with a great word processor), Multiple Choice Questions, and Multiple Response Questions. Faculty, if you would like a DigiExam account, please submit a Tech Request at support.riverdale.edu. To use DigiExam you only need to create your exam, and then share the "Exam ID" with your students. All MS and US students automatically have DigiExam accounts, and their "Student ID" is set to their email address.
