Examity is an online proctoring solution that gives students the flexibility to take exams remotely. It provides faculty, schools and students with the tools they need to prevent cheating and to preserve integrity. Your faculty may use this tool to either live or auto proctor your exams. The faculty member will detail this requirement in the syllabus. This could mean that you have to scan the area you are choosing to complete the test.
If your exam requires a live proctor, students have to schedule an exam with Examity. On test day, student identities are authenticated by the proctor. As soon as the validation process is complete which will include a room scan, students can begin their exams. After the final question, test-takers simply submit their exams.

If the COMMUNITY COLLEGE OF ALLEGHENY COUNTY (CCAC) or instructor permits you to use Examity at a non-College location, you should make every effort to choose a location that meets any and all College guidelines. If the location you choose is a home or personal environment, you agree to allow your activity and surrounding workspace to be recorded by video and audio and then analyzed by the proctor and the instructor of the course.
Note that CCAC and Examity understand students have a legitimate interest in preserving the privacy of their personal space. Examity does not share proctor videos with other students taking the same exam. Examity will never sell student data and will follow strict protocols for securing and retaining data generated during exams.
