Updated Jan 11, 2021

Before you can begin your assessment with Examity, you must schedule your exam. For more information, see How do I schedule or reschedule my exam with Examity? Make sure to test your technology and system requirements in advance of your scheduled exam day. For more information, see How do I test my technology for my online exam with Examity?

Test-takers are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of their exam to connect to their proctor and complete the authentication process. Depending on the authentication level your instructor selected, you may be required to:

1. Verify your identity. Make sure you have your photo ID with you. You will be required to hold the ID in front of your webcam. The proctor will need to see both your name and photo clearly.

2. Review the exam rules.

3. Show your desk and workspace. The proctor may ask you to complete a 360˚ room pan and desk sweep with your webcam. This is to ensure your workspace is clear of any materials not authorized by your instructor.

The time it takes you to connect to your proctor and complete the authentication process does not count towards your exam duration.
