WebCam Proctoring. What's That?
Webcam proctoring, also known as online proctoring, gives students the flexibility to take exams remotely (from their personal computer/laptop), while preventing cheating and preserving academic integrity.
With increased availability, minimal wait times, and lower proctoring fees, Examity is the new WebCam Proctor for UNC Online, beginning January 2020!
All webcam exam appointments are proctored in real time, by live proctors. Examity’s proctoring service is built around distinct time zones, ensuring that students have comprehensive availability, 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, including weekends and holidays.
Examity proctors are college educated and come to Examity with years of technical support accomplishments. The Examity proctoring team’s skills are sharpened during an 8-week intensive training program. Instruction focuses on Examity software, troubleshooting, privacy and the identification of suspicious behavior. The final 60 hours of training, for Examity proctors, include situational analysis and role-playing.
NOTE: If your exam is online then you can take your exam via the new WebCam Proctor (Examity) or you can use a face-to-face proctor. If your exam is online+paper or paper then you must use a face-to-face proctor.
