How do I set up Examity?

  • Students must first submit an Off-Campus Proctoring Request, selecting Examity as the proctor from the dropdown.
  • DELTA Testing Services will correspond with the student via email when exams can be scheduled or in the event that Examity is not a viable option for the course.
  • Once approved, students will also receive an email from Examity with further instructions. Students may need to check their spam folder.
  • Please reference the Examity Quick Guide for more detailed information.

What does it cost?

The cost of taking an exam with Examity varies based on the duration of the exam. Students pay Examity directly for the proctoring service.

The following exam appointment fees apply to NC State University exams:

First hour Each additional hour
$11.50* $6.00

*Any schedule changes (including cancellations) by students within 24 hours of an examination will result in a $3.00 charge per occurrence. A $5.00 payment will be required for any incomplete or no-shows for live proctoring services. Refunds are handled through Examity.

What is Assistant Online Proctoring?

Assisted Online Proctoring is a real-time process during which a proctor, who is not in the same location as the test taker and is using technology to observe a test event, is assisted by artificial intelligence, algorithmic software or other technologies during the test event.  For example, the proctor may use a webcam and microphone to observe or supervise a test event as well as artificial intelligence software to provide an alert in the event an irregularity is detected.

What else do I need to know?

  • Not all instructors permit the use of an online proctor.
  • You should set up your profile before your exam window opens.
  • Remember all testing times in the LMS are set as Eastern Standard Time. Remember to set your time zone in Examity.
  • Try a practice exam to make sure you know how to access the exam prior to the graded assessment.
  • Students who receive accommodations through the Disability Resource Office must submit the DELTA Accommodation Request Form prior to scheduling their appointments with Examity. Please verify your dates, times and any extended time accommodation on your LMS (Moodle) page.
  • Once the exam window opens, you can log in at your scheduled appointment time. 
  • Students who schedule or change their appointment late (within 24 hrs of an examination period) will result in an additional fee. No-shows/incomplete exams will also result in additional fees. 
  • The exam can be taken online at your convenience, at a specified date and time within your instructor’s exam window. 
  • Students are expected to follow all Examity policies regarding exam submission and assessment integrity, as well as the Student Code of Conduct. Incidents are reported to DELTA and the Instructor by Examity.

Why was my Examity Request Denied?

This may occur for two reasons. Either your instructor has indicated to DELTA that the course may not use Examity or that the exam delivery for your course is not completely online.  

If your request is denied, you will be required to find another suitable remote proctor who meets all standards and guidelines or you can reach out to your instructor.  Please refer to our website for a list of possible proctors in your area, and let us know if you have any questions.
