Margaret Greenfield, VP of Business Development, Examity

Online proctoring is designed to be as effective as In-Person proctoring but research validating this assumption is limited. To address the gap, a study comparing exam scores of candidates testing In-Person and Online was conducted at a public, open access university. The study involved 918 candidates who wrote English and/or mathematics tests during the pandemic, with 561 proctored in-person and 357 proctored online via Examity. During this webinar, the methods, results and possible explanations of the findings from this study will be presented by Dr. James.
