Exemplar means something that is worth copying or imitating. An archetype or a model serves as an exemplar. The word comes from the Latin word exemplum, which means "example." Word like paradigm, standard, ideal, example, and model are synonyms of the word "exemplar."

In forensic parlance, data or evidence collected in the form of blood samples, DNA samples, handwriting samples, voice samples, serum samples etc are all exemplars. The eminent science guru Thomas Kuhn conceptualised the "exemplar theory." The solutions to scientific puzzles and interconnecting information, laws and assumption which form the crux of normal science explored by the scientists are known as exemplars The question-answer matter that is found at the end of science chapters are also known as exemplars.
