Using ExamView on Mac OS 10.15 and newer

Starting with macOS 10.15 Catalina, Apple no longer supports 32-bit applications, including ExamView.

TurningClassic (formerly TurningPoint desktop) with ExamView support has been released. You can convert ExamView test (.tst) and question bank (.bnk) files into TurningClassic question lists (tests), create new question lists, and print them. TurningClassic is a free download from https://www.turning.com/downloads/turningclassic.

How do I put textbook content on my Mac?

In order to put your textbook content on your Mac you will still have to install any ExamView_Installer.pkg that is provided by your textbook publisher. If you are having trouble running the installer, click HERE.

After downloading and installing TurningClassic, follow these steps to convert existing ExamView tests (.tst) and question banks (.bnk) in TurningClassic:

  1. Open TurningClassic and sign into your account.
  2. Select the Content tab.Click the Content drop-down menu and select Convert ExamView/CPS File.Tip: If you do not have a Content tab, you are in TurningPro (formerly TurningPoint web) in an internet browser, not TurningClassic. You may download TurningClassic from https://www.turning.com/downloads/turningclassic.
  3. Locate the file(s) to be converted, select the file(s) and click Open. TurningClassic imports the file and places it under the Content tab.
