To take an online proctoring exam, you will need to create an ID in examity. This will allow examity to confirm that it is you who is taking the quiz on the day of the exam.

It is recommended that you setup your ID as soon as possible.
The sooner you set this up, the better! This will take no more than 5 minutes to do.

To setup your examity ID, all you will need is some form of photo ID. This should be your CIT student ID. If this is not available, your driver license or your passport will be fine also. You will need this to set up your examity profile, but you will also need to show the same ID on the day of the exam, so please have this ready!

To setup your examity ID:

1. In the module which you will be taking the exam for, click on the link in your canvas module “Step 1: Create your Proctor Profile here”
