  Taking action against threats to an exam’s security and integrity

Exam security plays a crucial role in validating your exam program. Privacy, security, and trust have always been at the forefront of Examity’s core values.

Examity strives to combat security risks that can compromise the integrity of an exam. Critical issues include proxy test-taking and harvesting exam content to be posted online for the public to view and download.

Examity is combating proxy test-taking by thoroughly screening test-takers to establish authenticity. Proctors perform multi-factor identification so that they can properly verify the test-taker and make sure that the correct person is taking the exam. Auditors and client success managers are also a part of the review process that assists in authenticating the test-taker, adding an additional level of security and verification.

While our proctors assist in combating exam item harvesting, additionally, we offer different degrees of security in order to prevent this issue. This includes our higher tier security features, Browser Lock and Browser Extension Lock which provide features to help impede harvesting. Browser Lock is software that prohibits a test-taker from using their internet browser to search other web pages and to make sure that they remain on the testing web page. Browser Extension Lock blocks specific Chrome browser extensions from running during an exam. Lastly, Examity also supports content masking, which provides an extra layer of security by not exposing test content to anyone except for the test-taker.

  Exam auditing

Examity’s auditing process is unique to the industry. It provides an additional layer of security and a second pair of eyes for every exam to establish greater protection of an exam’s integrity. Our auditing team is extensively trained in the exam review process to ensure accuracy, and that any rule violations or suspicious behaviors from test-takers are detected and flagged. Along with that, auditors make sure that proctors are following the correct procedures, and provide feedback to them on where they can improve upon. Improving the overall exam process leads to a seamless testing experience for test-takers and a positive test-taking journey.
