FairExam Level


Level AA: Auto-Authentication

Test-takers snap pictures of their ID and face, answer challenge questions and enter a biometric keystroke signature to verify identity.

Auto-Authentication is free and unlimited for all UC instructors.


Level LA: Live-Authentication

Live Authentication ensures test-takers understand the exam rules and are in a “clean” test environment. Challenge questions, ID verifications, facial comparisons, keystroke analysis and full recordings help make this level our most reliable authentication.


Level 1: Auto-Proctoring

Examity’ s fully automated proctoring solution. After auto-authentication is complete, Examity captures audio, motion, and system changes to identify inappropriate behaviors.


Level 2: Record and Review Proctoring

After live-authentication, each test is recorded from start to finish and is later viewed by a human, in its entirety, to ensure that no rules have been violated.


Level 3: Live Proctoring

After completing the live-authentication process, Examity monitors the test-taker’s surroundings and entire desktop throughout the exam. An advantage to this level is that Examity may comment and troubleshoot in real-time during the test.
