Computer Based Testing (CBT)



Bar exam applicants have the option to provide answers to the written portions (i.e., PT and Essay) of the bar examination using a personal laptop computer under certain conditions. The PT and Essay questions will be provided in booklet format, not electronic format. A software program called Examplify®, developed by ExamSoft Worldwide, Inc. (ExamSoft) will be utilized, which prevents a test taker from accessing any file other than the word processing function provided by the software during the written portions of the examination. The implementation of CBT is a direct result of the Board’s continuing goal to enhance the bar admission process and technological advancements in the field of testing.
