Automated Proctoring

AI and automated proctoring are not synonymous. At Examity, we use AI to complement our software and build a robust service and support model to provide effective automated proctoring.

AI and automated proctoring are not synonymous. At Examity, we use AI to complement our software and build a robust service and support model to provide effective automated proctoring.

We provide two forms of Automated Proctoring, Standard and Premium. The difference in these automated proctoring approaches (outlined below) lies in the audit and reporting process. As a client of Examity, you have the option to select both of these modalities or just one. The choice is yours.

Automated Standard

Automated Standard begins before the test does – with comprehensive auto authentication. This process can be fully configurable by the test sponsor. They can choose as many or as few of the following options as they would like. That way, test sponsors can have total control over the authentication process.

First, a test-taker will snap a picture of themselves and then their photo ID. This will be reviewed later by the test administrator. Next, the test-taker will answer a series of “challenge” questions to further verify their identity. 

Once this process is complete, the test-taker begins the exam and our automated proctoring technology takes over – monitoring the test from start to finish. At the end of each proctoring session, a full video of the exam, along with time-stamped comments, will be posted to the Examity dashboard for review by the test administrator.

Automated Premium

Many partners prefer to include a formal human audit of the proctoring session. This extra step corrects inaccurate flags, which can occur in any proctoring solution that uses AI, thereby saving the test sponsor from hours of time reviewing videos.

Automated Premium maintains the same authentication stages as our Automated Standard solution. This includes ID verification, and challenge questions. Again, test sponsors can choose which authentication procedures to include, so that it is the most valuable to them. Once a test-taker is authenticated, the exam begins, and our technology monitors the test-taker for the entire duration of the exam. It captures audio, motion, and systemic changes to identify any abnormal test-taking behaviors. However, once the proctoring session is complete, Automated Premium provides an additional level of scrutiny.

How? At the conclusion of every automated premium proctoring session, Examity will conduct a human audit that will review the authentication and exam session, along with any flags raised by our software. Following this review, the exam video, along with time-stamped violation flags and comments, will be released to the Examity dashboard.
