How do I set special accommodations for students in Examity?

Updated Jan 29, 2021

Instructors must obtain permission from the Provost's office and their department before the instructor can add the Examity tool to their Sakai course site. Please visit the Office of Online Learning's Online Course Proctoring page for more information. 

To set up Examity in your course, you should create the test in Sakai, then complete the exam set-up in Examity. Visit the How do I create my Examity assessment in Sakai? documentation for more information.

If students require test accommodations, you can make sure proctor support is aware ahead of time by entering the information in Examity® in addition to your set-up in the Sakai assessment.
