Examity Pilot Starting Spring 2017
Thursday, Jan 05, 2017
Instructional Technology Services announces a university-wide pilot of Examity, an assessment security and online proctoring service, for spring 2017.
Examity authenticates students for assessments, helps prevent academic dishonesty, and helps protect assessments from being copied and shared. The service offers varying levels of security—from basic authentication all the way through to live proctoring—to ensure students' identities and monitor actions during assessments. All authentication and proctoring are done electronically through a web browser interface that integrates with eCampus.
Based on a TAMU System licensing agreement, Examity is available for use in all eCampus courses throughout the university. Individual colleges and departments will determine billing and access to use the service on a course-by-course basis. All costs, payments, and authorizations for proctored assessments will be the responsibility of individual colleges and departments.

Examity will conduct an informational session for interested instructors, instructional staff, and administrators on Thursday, January 12, 10:00-11:00. The session will provide attendees with an overview and demo of the Examity dashboards along with information about how to use the service in courses.
