Examity

Integrate Examity with Canvas for online exam proctoring at Indiana University.

Examity

Examity online proctoring is available at no additional cost for students, but instructors must get permission from their academic schools to use Examity. Assessments taken through Examity are highly secure and use multiple forms of identity verification for test participants. Examity offers live proctoring instead of a recording, which is what you get with Respondus Monitor.

How to access Examity

  1. Contact your school's dean for approval to use Examity, and have them send this approval to your teaching center. Schools can grant permission "in batch" by courses, if that is easier for them.
  2. Complete the Online Proctoring Acknowledgement form.
  3. Contact your campus teaching and learning center after this approval has been received to set up a time to review options and set up proctoring for your class.
  4. Expect the setup process to take two to three weeks to complete.

For step-by-step instructions, read Examity for IU instructors on the KB.

Challenges with Examity

UITS asks faculty to keep in mind that students need adequate technology and a quiet place to take exams if you decide to utilize Examity. Live video surveillance during an exam may be disruptive and unnerving for some students. It is important for students to take a sample test to work out the bugs before you administer a real test using the service.

Using Examity with Canvas

Examity can integrate with Canvas, but you must add Examity as an external tool. It also can’t be added to your navigation, and can only be added as a module.
