Online Proctoring

Attention Faculty,

Distance Education has partnered with Examity®, a new online proctoring service. You can preview Examity® here at the Examity® Youtube Video (link opens in new window).

All online proctoring will use Examity® effective immediately as SmarterProctoring has been offically discontinued.

Thank you,
Distance Education Staff
Effective May 2017


Distance Education has purchased a contract with an online proctoring service.  There is no charge to faculty or students for use in fully online APSU courses.  Due to cost concerns, the use is limited to two exams per term per course. Please contact Distance Education about the pricing structure and breakdown.

Below is generic content that may be used in a course syllabus regarding online proctoring.

"This course will require students to use online proctoring for their exams.  Online proctored exams must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance.  Also, you will be required to create a student profile before you can schedule a proctored exam.  In order to participate in online proctoring you will require a reliable computer and internet connection, webcam, microphone and speakers.  While creating a profile and during your proctoring session you will be asked to show a student id, military id, or driver’s license so the online proctor can verify your identity."    

Technical Support

Support for online proctoring is provided through the online proctoring service.  There is a "Live Chat" button available on all the screens within Examity®. Support is also available via email at support@examity.com or by calling 855 EXAMITY (392-6489). In addition, you may also contact Distance Education Support  at (931) 221-6625 or online@apsu.edu.

Before it is time for your exam, please run the Examity® Computer Readiness Check to ensure your computer is properly configured for online proctoring. Note: link opens in new window.
