Examity Virtual Proctoring

Examity is the current virtual proctoring option for online courses through TN eCampus. Users of our past service will find this product works in a similar way. This page will provide a tutorial for course developers and instructors to setup virtual proctoring for Mid-term and Final exams.

Single Sign-on

There is no need for students or instructors to log into a website to access this service. Examity proctoring uses the single sign on process, which means once a student or instructor logs into their course there is full access to the program. To create an exam link, navigate to the submodule. Choose the Existing Activities menu. Select External Learning Tools.

 

Submodule open with Existing Activities highlighted and expanded to External Learning Tools.

Then choose Examity.

 

Add Activity window with Virtual Proctoring highlighted.

The Examity link will be placed with the mid-term or final exam.

Virtual Proctoring highlighted as an External Learning Tool.

Virtual Proctoring Dashboard

The dashboard will open after the link is selected. It offers access to four key areas starting with courses assigned to the instructor.
