The Accelerated MPAS Program uses ExamSoft/Examplify (electronic testing software) in all Year 1 courses and PAEA's Assessment Hub/Surpass (electronic testing platform) in all Year II courses. All students are required to bring a laptop ONLY that meets the minimum specifications below in order to sit for your exams. Tablets, iPads, or Chromebooks CANNOT be used to take exams in the program. Each student will be required to purchase a Privacy Screen or Privacy Filter that fits on their laptop.

At this time, Examplify can only be used on Mac, Windows, and iPad operating systems. Examplify will not run on Chromebook, Android, or Linux operating systems.

In Year II, only computers equipped with Mac and Windows operating systems can be used for Assessment Hub/Surpass. Exams cannot be taken on Chromebooks, iPads, or other tablets.
