The fall 2019 release of Mac OS 10.15 (Catalina) will no longer support 32-bit applications, including ExamView. This OS update has prompted us to begin transitioning ExamView content to our web-based TurningPoint platform.
We anticipate that TurningPoint web will be able to support all ExamView users by the end of March 2020. Until then, we suggest not updating to Mac OS 10.15. This will ensure you do not encounter any workflow changes or service interruption during the transition period.
- Content creation tools and multiple question types
- ExamView content (.tst and .bnk) conversion for use in the online platform
- Access and management of content and results online
- Real-time content and program updates
If you must update to Mac OS 10.15 prior to the release of TurningPoint web with support for ExamView users, you have these options:
- For all ExamView clients, you will receive a free TurningPoint license with five seats (or participants). You can use the seats to engage 5 students in a polling session to test the online polling capabilities of TurningPoint web. (Each student in a session must have a seat. You may purchase additional seats.) With this license, you can use TurningPoint desktop to convert, edit and print existing ExamView tests (.tst). You will not be able to create new tests with your existing content. Download TurningPoint desktop
- For all ExamView Premium clients, we will honor the remainder of your licensing with TurningPoint mobile.
