Washington State University has made a deal with Examity to use its online proctoring platform exclusively for up to 18,000 exams per year. And that number is expected to grow by 20 percent over the next seven years, according to a news announcement.
Examity’s platform offers live, recorded and automated proctoring options, in which a time-stamped flag system alerts instructors to suspicious behavior. Accessible directly through an institution’s learning management system, the software allows students to take their online exams any time, anywhere, as long as they have a webcam and microphone. Examity also provides students with 24-hour support to handle any technical issues.
“WSU has always been committed to providing high-quality educational opportunities worldwide,” said Rebecca Van de Vord, assistant vice president at Washington State University Global Campus, in a statement. “Examity’s comprehensive approach to proctoring reflects our commitment to using technology to create secure, high-quality learning environments for all students.”
