.XMZX File Extension
What is an XMZX file?
An XMZX file is an exam file used by ExamSoft SofTest, an exam-taking application available for Windows and macOS. It contains an exam that a student or other exam taker can take in SofTest. XMZX files are transformed into .XMWX and .XMDX files as students take and complete exams.
ExamSoft is a digital assessment platform that schools, businesses, and other entities use to test students, employees, and those seeking certifications. To take an ExamSoft exam, exam takers must download and install ExamSoft SofTest, which is a Windows and macOS application, and then open an exam file. SofTest exam files are saved as XMZX files.
Typically, proctors send XMZX files to exam takers along with a password that lets them open and start taking the exam. After an exam taker starts an exam, the exam's XMZX file is automatically deleted and replaced with an XMWX file, which contains a copy of the in-progress exam. When an exam taker finishes an exam, their completed exam is converted to an XMDX file, which is automatically uploaded to ExamSoft's cloud servers.
