Ensuring Exams Are as Unique as the Test-takers Who Take Them


When it comes to online testing, no two exams are the same. As its popularity has grown over the years, the variety of institutions and organizations who have utilized online testing has grown proportionately. Colleges, universities, organizations, standardized testing organizations, and more now rely on this type of test delivery to administer their exams. Within these groups, there is a lot of variation as well. Some test-takers are looking to earn credentials, while others are taking exams as part of their college’s courses. 

That’s why it is impossible to offer just one type of online proctoring for everyone. Instead, you need to provide multiple options for a tailored experience. Here are just some of the questions that should be considered when deciding what type of proctoring is right for your organization.

  • Who are your test-takers?
  • What are your goals for the assessment?
  • What kinds of rules will be needed?
  • Does your exam require high-stakes test security?
  • What is your budget?
  • Will your test-takers need live technical support?

To provide the best possible online testing experience, you need to determine the answers to these questions and work with a trusted partner like Examity to determine the right modality. With our team of experts and client success managers, we can provide best practices and help you every step of the way. 

Examity offers four types of proctoring to fit the diverse needs of the marketplace. And, we provide the unique ability to configure your proctoring solution on a per-test basis. That way, you will always have the right type of proctoring for each and every exam. Our four solutions include the following:

One size definitely does not fit all. It is all about flexibility. Rather than making clients conform to a particular solution, the solution conforms to the client’s needs. That may even include a hybrid approach, where some exams are given online and others are given in a test center. This provides the ultimate in convenience and flexibility for test-takers. 

Our approach even goes one step further. Add-ons and optional security enhancements are available to allow clients to have even more control over the kind of proctoring they use for their exams. Rules are also able to be configured for each exam, so that you can be sure the test is being administered exactly how you want it.

Online testing should be as unique as the people who take the exams. By not having a “one-size-fits-all” model, it is simple to provide an easy and personalized testing experience.
