Examity Authentication Instructions

If you have not established your Examity profile, you must do so before proceeding with the following steps (see Examity Profile Setup instructions in Module 1)

You must complete Examity authentication BEFORE starting your quiz or exam. Failing to do so will result in a 0 (zero) score on this quiz.

Be prepared to move directly from authenticating your identity in Examity to taking your quiz or exam. You must start this quiz immediately after completing authentication in order to receive credit.

Please run an Examity automated systems check before you continue.

Establishing your identity via Examity


Schedule an appointment for authentication. This appointment must be made at least 24 hours in advance of taking the quiz or exam. This appointment time will need to fall within the dates and times allotted to this quiz. Making an appointment outside the scheduled quiz time will not grant you access to the quiz.


To authenticate your identity in Examity, use your webcam to show your picture identification. You will then answer one or more of your security questions and enter your biometric signature by typing your name a few times. After your authentication is complete, you will be returned to D2L to link over to your quiz or exam. If needed, the Examity proctor will enter the password to grant you access to the quiz or exam.
