Online Test Proctoring

Ocean County College is dedicated to preserving the integrity of the assignments and courses offered in online learning. In order to assure the quality of our courses, OCC utilizes an online proctoring company, Examity, to oversee students while they work remotely.

What is Examity?

Examity is an online proctoring service that offers students a secure and convenient way to take proctored exams online from anywhere, any time of the day. Examity is integrated with Canvas, which allows students to access Examity directly in their course without the hassle of another username and password.

Getting Started

To access Examity, click on the Examity link located in the Get Started Module. From here, you can create or edit your profile and schedule, reschedule or cancel your exam. This is also where you will go to start your exam.

You must complete your profile in order to schedule your exam. Please refer to the Examity Student Quick Guide, located in the Get Started Module, for more information on setting up your profile.

Scheduling Your Exam

Whether you would like to take an exam now, or in the future, you must first schedule your exam by selecting the “Schedule Exam” icon on the Examity dashboard. To access the Examity dashboard, click on the Examity link located in the Get Started Module.
