Examity offers two proctoring solutions for the ACCUPLACER exams: Live Proctoring and Automated Proctoring with Examity Review

Live Proctoring

Live Proctoring is our most secure offering, using a human proctor to support the entire testing session starting with ID authentication. 

Our Live Proctoring option provides:

  • Real-time support – Examity’s technically-skilled proctors will provide real-time support throughout the entire exam, resulting in higher student success. 
  • Low-proctor ratio Examity has the lowest student-to-proctor ratio in the industry. With our low-proctor ratio, our proctors can truly focus on the students, giving each one individualized attention and contributing to a positive and secure exam experience. 
  • Live ID authentication – The proctor will conduct live authentication of the student in order to fully verify that the correct student is taking the exam. The proctor will also ask the student to perform a 360° room and desk sweep to ensure that no unauthorized materials are present in the student’s testing environment.

Automated Proctoring with Examity Review

Automated Proctoring with Examity Review offers the affordability of automated proctoring while also including a human audit to save administrators time.

Automated Proctoring with Examity Review provides:

  • Automated authentication   Before their exam, the student will go through a multi-factored automated authentication procedure, which includes ID and facial verification along with answering a challenge question.
  • Automated proctoring – This technology has the ability to record the student’s environment and computer screen, and flags any suspicious behaviors or rule violations.
  • Human review by Examity auditor – Our extensively-trained auditors provide a second set of eyes and an additional layer of security, thoroughly reviewing the entire testing session and saving you from hours of time from having to view the full exam. 
  • A testing experience without the use of biometrics – We don’t use biometric analysis. We rely on human decision making from our proctors and auditors to make accurate assessments and determine the best courses of action.

All students also have access to our global support team, which operates 24/7 to support every student and can be reached via live chat, phone, or email. 

The prices for both of these proctoring options, and frequently asked questions regarding using Examity for your ACCUPLACER exams, can be found on our ACCUPLACER Administrator Q&A page.
