Troubleshooting Access

If you see the error message "Sorry, we couldn’t connect to your school’s login page", make sure your computer’s default browser is Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. If the error persists (or you are on an iPad), that means your account hasn’t been created yet. Once your instructor has created the course in ExamSoft and synced the enrollment, you will be able to log in.

If you see the error message "We were unable to validate your username and password. Please check your credentials and try again", do NOT select the Forgot User ID/Password? option. You will not be able to reset your password with ExamSoft. Instead, select the Back option. You will then be prompted to Choose an Account. After selecting Add New Account, enter your institution's ID: The Ohio State University (osu). At this time your institution's login page will appear in a browser window. After entering in your login information, you will then be able to open Examplify.

If you have any other access issues, please contact the Carmen eLearning Support team at carmen@osu.edu.
