Q: If my school doesn't renew their subscription to Examgen Online, will I have access to my exams?

individual subscription for only $9.95/month and have access to all of your saved exams.

A:You can use a purchase order for the 1-year per course per user license ($119).

Q: How well does the test bank support the new AP physics standards?
Can I filter questions related to the new standards?
A: The Physics question bank supports a regular high school course, not the new AP Physics per
the Next Generation Science Standards. Examgen has aligned the Biology to the NGSS and plans
on aligning the Chemistry and Physics question banks over the summer to have available by
the next school year.
Q: Can the Online Version be used to write our own test questions, as well as sort and store them?
A: We plan to add an editing feature to Examen Online within the year. For now, only our Desktop Version
allows you to add and edit questions.
Q: Do you have question banks appropriate for AP science courses?
A: At this time, Examgen does not have AP questions for science. However, the Biology 3rd has advanced
Biology questions that are aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards. Please sign up for a 14-day
free trial to view these questions to see if they will meet your needs.

Q: Do your question banks support my state’s standards?
A: Examgen currently offers the 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Common Core Math, along with Algebra I Common Core.
These question banks were authored specifically to match the rigor and question styles called for by the CCSS
We will be releasing 8th Grade CC ELA, 9th- 10th Grade CC ELA, Geometry CC and Algebra II CC by next school year.
One handy feature we offer is the ability to search for questions by both topic and standard, so regardless of curriculum
modifications, it remains easy to create classroom materials that line up with your curriculum.
