FAQ’s – Students
Q: What does Examity® do?
Examity® is an online proctoring solution that gives students the flexibility to take exams remotely. It provides teachers, schools and students with the tools they need to prevent cheating and to preserve integrity.
Q: How does Examity® work?
The first step is to set up a profile. It takes less than five minutes. Next, students schedule an exam. On test day, students’ identities are authenticated by the proctor. As soon as the validation process is complete, students can begin their exams. After the final question, students simply submit their exams.
Q: How do I create a profile in Examity®?
You can create and access your profile through your school’s learning management system (LMS) such as (Blackboard, Canvas, D2L etc.). Ready to get started? Log in to your LMS, select your course, and find a link for Examity. From there, please follow the prompts to create your profile. Can’t find the Examity link on the course page? If you are aware that your course is using Examity and you are unable to create a profile, please contact our support team at 855-EXAMITY or email@example.com for assistance.
Q: Who will be proctoring my exams?
The team is comprised of strong communicators, technical troubleshooters and well-focused college professionals. Each Examity® proctor has been interviewed by a member of the senior management team.
Q: What if something goes wrong during my test?
Examity® offers technical support all day, every day. If something goes wrong either before or during an exam, students can connect with our support team by email, by phone or by live chat.
Q: Does the process of connecting to my proctor cut into my exam time?
No. The 5-minute authentication process does not cut into your exam time. The timer on your exam does not start until you have begun the test.
Q: Will I have the same proctor every time I take my test?
Examity® proctors are randomly assigned to exams. You may get the same proctor more than once, but you may also have a different proctor for each test.
