Examity Inc.

Proctoring Solutions

Examity is a pioneer in providing flexible proctoring options. We offer four proctoring levels, from automated through to live, giving you the ability to pick the right style of proctoring to meet your goals. 

Finals, midterms, and quizzes each require a different approach to proctoring. Examity has a fit for every scenario.

Automated Standard Proctoring

Automated Standard begins before the test does – with comprehensive auto authentication. First, a test-taker will snap a picture of themselves and then their photo ID. This will be reviewed later by the test administrator. Next, the test-taker will answer a series of “challenge” questions to further verify their identity. This process can be fully configurable by the test sponsor. They can choose as many or as few of the following options as they would like. That way, test sponsors can have total control over the authentication process.

Once this process is complete, the test-taker begins the exam, and our automated proctoring technology takes over – monitoring the test from start to finish. At the end of each proctoring session, a full video of the exam, along with time-stamped comments, will be posted to the Examity dashboard for review by the test administrator.

Automated Premium Proctoring

Many partners prefer to include a formal human audit of the proctoring session. This extra step corrects inaccurate flags, thereby saving the test sponsor from hours of time reviewing videos.

Automated Premium maintains the same authentication stages as our Automated Standard solution. This includes ID verification and challenge questions. Again, test sponsors can choose which authentication procedures to include, so that it is the most valuable to them. Once a test-taker is authenticated, the exam begins, and our technology monitors the test-taker for the entire duration of the exam. It captures audio, motion, and systemic changes to identify any abnormal test-taking behaviors. However, once the proctoring session is complete, Automated Premium provides an additional level of scrutiny.

How? At the conclusion of every automated premium proctoring session, Examity will conduct a human audit that will review the authentication and exam session, along with any flags raised by our software. Following this review, the exam video, along with time-stamped violation flags and comments, will be released to the Examity dashboard.

Live Standard Proctoring

Our industry-leading approach to live, online proctoring provides everything you need for the most secure test-taking experience possible.

Beginning with live authentication, Examity’s live proctor will first verify that the ID on file matches with the ID brought to the test and then compare the two with a real-time webcam feed of the test-taker. After a challenge question, the test-taking environment then becomes the main focus. Examity’s live exam proctor will conduct a 360᷾° sweep of the room and workstation, ensuring any unauthorized materials are removed before testing can proceed.

Once live authentication is complete, the proctor will provide the test-taker with access to the exam, and the Examity proctor will leave the session. Although a human proctor is not present, the exam session will be recorded from start to finish, and our AI-technology will monitor the exam for any unusual activity. Upon exam completion, an Examity proctor and an Examity auditor will review both the authentication process and proctoring session. Only after this review takes place will the entirety of the recorded session, along with the corresponding reporting data, be released to your Examity dashboard.

Live Premium Proctoring

With the same capabilities of Standard Live Proctoring’s pre-test authentication and post-test audit, Premium Live Proctoring offers an extra layer of security. That’s because the live proctor will oversee the entire session, from authentication to test completion. Such a high level of security allows a proctor to proactively address suspicious behavior or respond to a technical question, should such a need arise.

This level of live proctoring is recognized throughout the industry as the best choice for high-stakes exams; presenting the highest possible level of security. And as an added advantage, Examity proctors are able to provide interactive technical support in real-time if necessary.
