What Does It Mean To Be Truly Flexible in Online Proctoring?


When choosing an online proctoring solution for your exams, it’s important to not only consider security, but to also factor in flexibility and configurability. Online proctoring should never be one-size-fits-all: You shouldn’t have to modify your program to fit an online proctoring provider’s service. A truly flexible online proctoring solution will allow you to select the exam security that meets the objectives of each assessment, and that can tailor itself to fit your program’s unique needs.

Examity is one of the few online proctoring solutions in the industry whose focus is solely on online proctoring, and that makes us truly flexible and unique. We aren’t limited to any one platform, or to any one offering. We offer our clients the best-in-class technology and the ability to choose from a variety of different platforms, allowing us to provide the highest level of service for our clients and their exams.

When it comes to online proctoring, what else does true flexibility entail? Let’s find out.

Integration ability and technological capabilities

A truly flexible online proctoring provider gives organizations the ability to pick how and where they can deliver their assessment programs without limitations. Examity is capable of integrating with any testing platform, so we’re not tied to any specific sets of technologies. We’re able to modify our solution based on what you need, and what makes the most sense for your program.

How are we able to do this? We support a robust set of APIs that lets us integrate with test delivery platforms, learning management systems, candidate management systems, and other systems that might be involved in the testing ecosystem. Our partners also enable us to expand our technological capabilities and to utilize any technology that our clients desire. With Examity, you’ll have access to the highest-quality technologies to optimize your program. Our best-in-class approach lets you choose which technologies you want to use, such as the technologies offered by certain test drivers or learning management systems, and you can substitute them with different ones at any time.

Around-the-clock scheduling and support

Another feature that makes an online proctoring program truly flexible is the availability of its services for test-takers. Through Examity, test-takers can take their exams at their own convenience, and they can schedule their exams right away. If test-takers need assistance during their exams, they will always have access to our international test-taker support team, which provides 24/7 support via live chat, phone, or email. 

In addition to our support team, our live solutions use college-educated, technologically-skilled proctors to provide the ultimate real-time support for test-takers during an exam. Not only that, but we use only one proctor throughout the entire exam and utilize a low test-taker-to-proctor ratio. Other providers may use one proctor to observe 8-10 test-takers, or even more. At Examity, the highest number of test-takers a proctor will have to monitor is four. However, our test-taker-to-proctor ratio averages 2:1, and it’s often even 1:1. This means that test-takers will receive more focused and individualized service from their proctor, enabling the proctor to provide even greater flexibility to test-takers.

The ability to choose security solutions depending on the objectives of the exam

What else makes Examity truly flexible? Our ability to let you select the proctoring option that will best serve your program, all on a test-by-test basis. For example, you might want to use one of our live solutions for your high-stakes exams. Or, an automated solution may be the perfect fit for your lower-stakes exams. And, once you choose your proctoring solutions, you won’t be stuck with them – you can always modify your choices and adjust as needed. We never coerce clients into picking just one solution; we educate them on each one’s benefits and consult with them to determine which one works best, based on the goals of a specific exam.

By solely focusing on online proctoring, we offer superior flexibility while ensuring a seamless exam experience and greater protection of test integrity.
