Publisher-provided question banks and tests are periodically updated to keep state standards and question content current. You can check for content updates as often as you like.
Checking for Content Updates
Downloaded content will overwrite your existing question banks, state standards within your question banks, and publisher-created tests (depending on the update type). To avoid losing changes you may have made to your question banks or the publisher test files, it is recommended that you make a backup copy of your existing question banks and publisher tests and save them in a different folder.
An active internet connection is required to download content updates.
- Click Help from the menu bar and select Check for Content Updates.
- Click the folder buttons to locate the folder that includes the publisher question banks and tests that you want to update.
ExamView checks for content updates by comparing the question banks and tests on your hard drive or network with the updates available online. Make sure that you locate the folder that includes the question banks that you wish to update before checking for updates. You can change the default folder location in the Preferences.
- Click OK.
- Select the product or products that you wish to update from the list and click Download Now.
A content update indicates that question content has been changed and new question banks / tests will be downloaded. A state standard update indicates that only the state standards have changed. The new state standards will be downloaded and merged into your existing question banks / tests. This update will not affect any existing tests unless it is a test supplied by the publisher.
- Click Close when the update is complete.
