Many courses in the UWS chiropractic program include electronic tests administered through the ExamN+ browser. Follow these step-by-step instructions to set up guided access and the ExamN+ Browser.

Setting up Guided Access

The ExamN+ Browser app requires the use of Guided Access on your digital device. Guided Access locks down your device to the open app. You cannot send or receive texts, take screenshots, or access anything outside of the ExamN+ Browser.

  1. Once the ExamN+ Browser app has been installed, open the app.
  2. Enter the Registration Code: EXAMNPLUS. This Registration Code only needs to be entered once during app setup.
