What are the different proctoring methods with Examity?

To use Examity as an instructor at Loyola, please contact individuals in the Provost's office. Please visit the Office of Online Learning's Online Course Proctoring page for more information. 

Students should contact their instructors to identify which proctoring method will be used in their course.

Examity offers two levels of authentication and three levels of proctoring services. Each level of authentication pairs with a level of proctoring.


  • Level AA: Auto-Authentication

Test-takers snap pictures of their ID and face, answer challenge questions and enter a biometric keystroke signature to verify identity.

  • Level LA: Live Authentication

Level LA asks test takers to affirm understanding of exam rules. The process includes challenge questions, ID verifications, facial comparisons, keystroke analysis, and full test recordings.


  • Level 1: Auto-Proctoring

This is a fully automated proctoring solution. After level AA auto-authentication is complete, Examity® captures audio, motion, and systemic changes to identify inappropriate behaviors.

  • Level 2: Record and Review Proctoring

After level LA live-authentication, each test is recorded from start to finish and is later viewed by a human, in its entirety, to ensure that no rules were violated.

  • Level 3: Live Proctoring

After the level LA live-authentication, a live proctor monitors the test taker’s surroundings and entire desktop throughout the exam using the test taker's webcam. Examity® may comment and troubleshoot in real-time during the test.
