Online Proctoring Updates

As our spring semester is closing and we are facing our next steps for summer and fall, we wanted to take a moment to give you several Examity updates. 

First and foremost is that our new platform will now launch at the beginning of the Fall semester rather than in June.  This new timeline will allow Examity to launch the new product with all of its features at once (rather than a phased rollout), and it will enable our team to perform extensive tests prior to launch to ensure that what we receive will work for the University of Arizona.

Our training for the new platform will start during the summer and we will share those dates, along with announcements about any further developments here.  

We have also refined our guidelines for Examity use on campus.  We are asking that those using or considering to use Examity follow these guidelines for test level selection:

Arizona Online, iCourse, and Global Courses

For high-stakes assessments (midterms, finals, or tests worth a significant portion of the final grade)

  • Live Proctoring (Level 3)
  • Record and Review (Level 2)
  • Automated Proctoring (Level 1P)

For other tests and exams

  • Record & Review (Level 2)
  • Automated Proctoring (Level 1P)

In-Person, Hybrid, and Remote Teaching Courses

For high-stakes assessments (midterms, finals, or tests worth a significant portion of the final grade)

  • Record and Review (Level 2)
  • Automated Proctoring (Level 1P)

Testing Office Services

We have been working very closely with our partners at the University of Arizona Testing Office to provide special-circumstance, small-group online proctored exams for Spring 2020 finals and Summer 2020 testing. In Fall and beyond, the Testing Office will offer a wide range of proctoring opportunities on campus.
