Examity looks at every testing program individually; there isn’t a cookie-cutter approach. The key is to understand a program’s goals, security sensitivities, candidate audience, and test format, and then help fit those goals with a solution that meets the program’s needs.

Building Online Proctoring Into Your Certification Program

Ask the Expert

What is the significance of bringing online proctoring to the certification and licensure industry?
Some people only associate online proctoring with higher education. While online proctoring has been standard at universities for a long time, Examity has also been successfully serving the broader assessment industry for years. 

For the professional industry specifically, online proctoring provides some unique capabilities and benefits. For example, Examity’s online proctoring solution includes 24/7 access to support, a jump in accessibility for candidates, and real-time management of programs. Additionally, clients have the flexibility to choose the test delivery platform that’s best for them, pulling from Examity’s myriad of strategic partnerships. These services are not available with strictly in-person certification and licensure exams, so bringing these services and capabilities to this professional testing space is huge.

What experience does the Examity team have that makes them experts in certification exam administration, specifically?
Examity has been working with testing programs like Okta, Adobe, Duolingo, and others since the beginning, and we continue to see significant growth in the realm of professional assessments. In this industry especially, we understand the value of the content and know how the delivery experience impacts the brand. Examity plays a small part, but has a huge impact on customer satisfaction. That’s why we assembled a leadership team who has the experience and knowledge to help professional testing organizations make the best use of online proctoring.

Certification and licensure tests come in a myriad of formats and cover a broad range of topics. How does Examity meet the unique needs of all of these programs?
Examity looks at every testing program individually; there isn’t a cookie-cutter approach. The key is to understand a program’s goals, security sensitivities, candidate audience, and test format, and then help fit those goals with a solution that meets the program’s needs. The solution can include a mix of automated and live proctoring formats.

How do you function as an extension of every client’s brand and policies surrounding their specific certification?
A great thing about Examity’s solution is that we partner with our clients to understand the requirements of their assessment. We then collaborate to implement the desired format and ensure that program policies are carried out. Our proctors act as an extension of the client by working with candidates to provide a fair and equitable testing process. Another key differentiator for Examity is that each client can choose which test delivery platform or LMS is right for them. We partner with a multitude of vendors and have an experienced integration team, so we can build Examity into your existing platform. This creates a unified, seamless experience that maintains allegiance to the client’s brand. 

What makes Examity’s proctoring solution stand out from other proctoring providers in the space, particularly when it comes to licensure and certification examinations?
Examity is the online proctoring industry leader because of our flexibility, integration, scalability, support, and service. We offer an industry-leading 2:1 candidate-to-proctor ratio, which results in the best security oversight and customer service available. Examity provides flexible, multimodal online proctoring, with both automated and live solutions. Plus, we don’t limit clients to our test driver or a limited list of driver choices. Furthermore, our extensive integration experience and unprecedented ability to scale has allowed us to proctor millions of exams every year. We also take support and service very seriously, which is why we provide premium 24/7/365 candidate support, paired with the lowest wait times in the industry. While other vendors may be able to provide licensure exams with an online space for proctored tests, these advantageous attributes are unique to Examity and showcase our unmatched industry expertise.
