By this stage, you should have

  1. Setup your Examity ID
  2. Have gone through the security measures for the exam
  3. You should also be ready to upload photos of your written work through the Canvas Student App on your smartphone

For the exam:

1. Once you have connected to a proctor, you will be asked to share your screen and the authentication process will begin. Examity proctor support will walk you through the authentication process. You will be asked to:
  • Verify your identity. Make sure you have your photo ID with you. You will be required to hold the ID in front of your webcam. The proctor will need to see both your name and photo clearly.
  • Review and agree the exam rules.
  • Show your desk and workspace. The proctor will ask you to complete a 360° room pan and desk sweep with your webcam. This is to ensure your workspace is clear of any materials you are not allowed to use
2. You will now be asked to review and agree to the Examity User Agreement as well as the exam rules and any special instructions set by your instructor.

3. You will now be prompted to answer a previously selected security question. Once you have entered your answer, please press the “Submit” button.

4. You will now be asked to enter your biometric keystroke signature. Once you have entered your signature, select the “Submit” button.

5. When the exam has started, you will be asked to connect either via zoom or gotomeeting. The proctor will simply observe you taking the test. They will not interrupt you unless they think they notice very clear cheating behavior

  • It is very important that you keep your webcam and screen shared on for the duration of the exam

6. When you press the “Begin Exam” button, you will be directed to the exam assignment in Canvas. From here, you can see the instructions for your exam. You can begin writing your exam answers on the pen and paper you have prepared.

  • If you are not redirected to the exam automatically, go back into Canvas and access the exam under "Assignments" or under "Step 3: Exam and Submission" in the home page or units area

6. When you are completed (and before the end of the exam time), you can upload the results of your writing via the Canvas app. To do this:

  1. Speak clearly into the webcam to announce that you are finished and will be uploading your results.
  2. Using the canvas student app on your smartphone, take photographs of all of your handwritten answers. There are full instructions on how to do this here

7. After you have uploaded your results, you must end the live proctoring process. To do this, simply inform your proctor that you are finished the exam

  • Be sure to double check that you have uploaded photographs of your work to Canvas correctly before you end the proctoring.
