At Examity, accessibility is a fundamental part of our development process. We continuously assess and update our product and materials to meet the high standards and accessibility best practices established within the WCAG Guidelines.
Examity is fully compliant with sections 504 and 508 of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), including the accessibility requirements for the hearing and visually impaired. We provide test integrity solutions with a strong focus on accessibility, ensuring equitable access for all test-takers and instructors. Examity is also fully compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level A and Level AA for both the test-taker and test administrator roles.
With Examity, it is easy to add special accommodations for specific test-takers. From extra time to assistive technology requirements, administrators can add unique accommodations with just a few clicks.
During a live proctored exam, the accommodation will be viewed by the proctor before the test-taker engages. All proctors are trained on how to utilize each tool to meet a test-taker’s needs. Our accommodation workflow is also available in our automated solutions. Please note that extended time for test-takers is available at no cost as a courtesy.
Our software can also be used with various assistive technologies such as screen readers, including JAWS and Kurzweil, and magnification tools, such as ZoomText.
Below is a list of some of the many accommodations we support:
- Extended time (the vast majority)
