Examity is a campus-wide exam security solution for the University of Arizona. Examity authenticates test-takers, prevents cheating and protects tests from being copied.

Getting Started

Examity is available to use in all University of Arizona courses and can be added to a learning management (LMS) course site. If you do not use an LMS site for your course, but do conduct exams through another web based tool, you can still use Examity. Follow our links below for additional information.

Examity offers levels of security from authentication through live proctoring to ensure that the student taking the test is the person who is supposed to be taking the test.  All authentication and proctoring are done electronically through a web interface integrated with all three of the UA’s major Learning Management Systems (D2L, Blackboard, and Canvas). 

Examity FairExam Levels:

The University of Arizona offers four levels of Examity testing security. Instructors may select the level that best matches the needs of each assessment or evaluation.

Level AA

Identity verification only. Tests not proctored.

Fully automated solution requires no appointment and meets accreditation standards.
Safeguard for when identity verification is a concern

Level 1

Confirms test-taker's identity. Proctors a random sample of test.

Live authentication
100% recording of sample proctored tests.
Use to deter cheating. Students are unaware if being proctored prior to test-time.
Use for lower stakes exams when identity verification is not enough.

Level 2

Confirms test-taker's identity. 100% of tests are recorded and then proctored.

Live authentication
100% recording and proctoring tests.
Use if priority is to eliminate the possibility of test-taker interruptions.
Use if less concerned about test pirating and/or question leakage.

Level 3

Confirms test-taker's identity. 100% of exams are live proctored

Use for high-stakes tests and certifications
During Level 3 sessions, a proctor is available to redirect and question suspicious testing behavior or provide technical and student support
