Ram Subedi
09:53
Pam: Is this service through SmarterProctoring or directly with Examity?
Ishrat Rahman
09:55
are you also going to show how we can deploy exams via examity?
Ishrat Rahman
10:45
I think Smarter proctoring uses ProctorU, which is different from this
Jillian Pfau
10:52
Is examity compatible with Kurzweil read the web and it not—what work around is available to make it accessible
Pamela Wessells
11:26
This service is administered through Examity, not SmarterProctoring. So you will add the link in Tools in the Bb shell, similar to the way you did with SP
Carrie Shaw
11:38
Is the student browser locked down so that they can't surf to other tabs to search the Internet?
Ram Subedi
11:39

Carrie Shaw

How does the proctor monitor Internet searching. then, if it doesn't lockdown?
Shelley Jones
13:43
Has the College already paid for either Standard or Premium? Live or Automated?
Ishrat Rahman
13:44
When you say 'dashboard' ...does it mean that instructors need to make an account?
Maurice Shihadi
14:44
What about students who have issues with videos?
Maurice Shihadi
14:55
In terms of leveraging FERPS.
Maurice Shihadi
15:02
FERPA I mean.
gthai
15:02
Some students don't have cameras … we are trying to address that
Ram Subedi
15:16
Brooke: Chromebook compatibitly -- The info on the web mentiones Chromebook doesn't meet rqmt
Ram Subedi

https://www.examity.com/test-takers/
Brooke Poulin

Excellent!
Ram Subedi

Ishrat Rahman
16:23
Awessome! thank you so much
Ram Subedi
16:23

When will we be able to begin using Examity?
Ram Subedi
18:07
To add to Leah's question: What's the policy on rescheduling?
Brooke Poulin
18:48
students have 30 minutes before their session goes to a No show. They can reschedule their session at any time if needed.
Brenda Knopp
18:49
Is it compatible with ATI?
Ishrat Rahman
19:06
I think it's already available in the tools area on Bb
Leah Allen
19:19
Wow, that is so much better! Thanks, Brooke!
Ishrat Rahman
20:10
Do instructors have access to the videos ?
Monique Peters - Munro
20:17
So, we dont need a lockdown browser?
Solomon Teklai

So we (MC) pays per proctored test or per student tested?
Ram Subedi
21:53
Bandwidth limits/requirements?
Ishrat Rahman
22:10
Do students schedule a time to take the exam?
EJADACKI
23:09
Is Examity compatible with Pearson Math Xl My Lab Products?
Forrest Johnson

Yes!
Leah Allen
24:53
Does MC need to approve exams before they are available to students?
Pamela Wessells
25:21
No
Maurice Shihadi
25:21
What about these issues. This student has recommendation to cheat. They look feasible. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlcYjjKYvmc
nancy
25:47
Is this already in MY BB course sites? Where is it?
Forrest Johnson
25:54
Leah Exams won't be available to students until you are ready for them to be.
EJADACKI
25:59
tools
Diego Hernandez
26:26
I don’t see it in my “Tools” area - what is it called? Is it called something else instead of “Examity”?
Leah Allen
26:37
Forrest, there was a delay with the previous proctoring system because all exams and accommodations had to be approved by MC
Richard Gottfried-CPA
26:48
if the accounting faculty have an interest do you do a demo of the software with wileyplus existing exam using webex, teams or zoom?
Maurice Shihadi
26:56
I did a YouTube search on "cheating on online proctored exam" and found many recommendations for how to cheat and be successful. See https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=cheating+on+online+proctored+exam
EJADACKI
27:07
examity SSO
Ram Subedi
27:49
How's the student list populated? Do students need to create their profile initially?
Ishrat Rahman
29:05
do students need a password?
Ishrat Rahman
29:11
to access the exam?
Forrest Johnson
31:04
Yes students need a password. They do not know it, Examity will enter it
Forrest Johnson
31:14
Students needs to create their profile. Brooke will show
Ishrat Rahman
31:17
so the password is set by the instructors for examity?
Forrest Johnson
31:22
Correct
Ishrat Rahman
31:35
thank you
Forrest Johnson
32:02
Maurice I reviewed the cheating video on youtube. He's basically advertising students use their phones in a "blind spot"
Forrest Johnson
32:10
This is one of the easiest ways we catch students cheating
Margaret Tabiri
32:53
How is this different from Respondus Lockdown Browser with Webcam if students still need to install a lockdown browser?
Sue Haddad
33:46
'm unclear, is this compatible for a student using Kurzweil, Jaws, or Dragon Dictate? Many students use Assistive Technology as an accommodation. Please clarify. Thank you.
Ram Subedi
33:55
How do students submit their scrap papers?
Leah Allen
34:19
If students are allowed scrap paper, do proctors make sure that the paper is ripped up so that students don't share questions with friends?
Barry Spieler
34:21
Can we specify allowed websites students can access during a test?
Brenda Knopp
36:25
Can that be an existing exam in a different CRN Bb site?
Brenda Knopp
37:00
Pulling over instructions rom one CRN to another
Ishrat Rahman
38:46
I have the same question as Barry Speiler
Monique Peters - Munro
38:51
Can students open links built into test questions?
Forrest Johnson
39:04
@Maurice, no company can claim 100% ability to prevent cheating. Proctoring is a deterrent and its a question of how good of a deterrent is it. Examity is leading our industry in this manner. With live proctoring it is very hard to cheat and get away with it. Very very hard. The videos you showed mostly are geared towards strategies for automated proctoring
Forrest Johnson
39:13
Yes Monique
Carlotta Amaduzzi
39:15
Can these instructions be updated after the test has already been created?
Carlotta Amaduzzi
39:28
Just making sure
Forrest Johnson
41:39
@ Carlotta - yes
Ishrat Rahman
41:41
If there's an error in the exam, can instructors make changes/or edit after the exam's been deployed?
Forrest Johnson
42:00
Yes Ishrat
Forrest Johnson
42:22
Maurice you can see the student and the monitor during the exam recording
Ishrat Rahman
42:47
Thank you Forrest! that's awesome
Ishrat Rahman
43:55
how or where do we specify an external website that I want students to be able to use?
Donna
43:57
Are you available to work 1-on-1 with a professor to set up the first real exam?
Forrest Johnson
44:19
@Ishrat, that is specified in the instructions tab
Natalie Martinez
44:34
In supporting documents, that are uploaded for a particular exam, how are those documents checked to ensure accessibility so that a student with a screen reader will be able to access them? Additionally if a student needs a sign language interpreter for directions, can an interpreter be allowed access into the testing environment?
Donna
44:35
How long is the video of the live proctoring saved?
Donna
45:21
Great! Thanks.
Ishrat Rahman
45:27
Great!
Ishrat Rahman
45:46
thank you for asking the question, @ Donna!
Forrest Johnson
45:47
yes interpreters are allowed
Brenda Knopp
46:02
Can that be an existing exam in a different CRN Bb site?Pulling over instructions rom one CRN to another
Forrest Johnson
46:08
non violation videos are saved for 60 days
Forrest Johnson
46:20
videos with cheating evidence (red flags) held for 1 year
Forrest Johnson
46:34
@ Brenda, yes
Ishrat Rahman
46:39
Do students have to download a lockdown browser or do students share their screen?
Ishrat Rahman
46:46
w/ examity?
Forrest Johnson
47:37
Maurice, IP addresses on our product teams radar but we have to dance the dance and be careful too. Many people see IP addresses monitoring as invasion of privacy
Forrest Johnson
47:49
Ishrat no downloads
Monique Peters - Munro
47:52
Will schedule details be also show the completion time of the test?
Forrest Johnson
47:54
all browser based
Leah Allen
48:02
Do we have the option to impersonate a student? I have needed to do that to help some schedule exams in the past.
Ishrat Rahman
48:17
Thank you! Leah you read my mind!!
Forrest Johnson
48:20
Yes students do share their screen with us
Barry Spieler
48:21
Can the instructor see the time at which each student has scheduled an upcoming exam?
Forrest Johnson
48:37
Yes instructors can see when students have scheduled their exam
Ram Subedi
48:46
IP's can be spoofed too... so that's likely not going to help. But does examity AI detect these?
Harry Zarin
48:48
Is Examity compatible with Jaws, Dragon, or Kurzweil?
Forrest Johnson
48:57
Leah that support function falls on us
Forrest Johnson
49:05
we provide practice exams, training videos and live support
Leah Allen
49:26
Great! Thanks, Forrest.
Ishrat Rahman
49:34
Can instructors access in student preview mode to check?
Maurice Shihadi
49:40
@Forrest. It is just a deterent I guess. Cheaters probably know all about dynamic versus static IP addresses and virtual private networks.
Forrest Johnson
49:58
Harry yes we are compatible with those
Forrest Johnson
50:17
We can monitor for VPNs
lrobinso
50:57
I do not think that during COVID MC has been providing student IDs. What about undocumented students that may not have a government issued id?
Maurice Shihadi
51:03
Are there browser issues like one browser better than others or the use of add-ins.
Forrest Johnson
51:25
Irobinso we'll work with you to identify an agreeable workaround for these students
Forrest Johnson
51:46
Maurice we allow only Chrome or Edge (because edge built on chrome)
Jeri G
52:39
@Linda Robinson - thanks for asking the question.
Cristina Daley Butler
52:54
Do you have simple how-to-handouts for students that could be included in the syllabus?
Forrest Johnson
53:04
@Christina, yes
Forrest Johnson
53:19
we also offer free practice exams so that students can "cut their teeth" on this process
Cristina Daley Butler
53:26
Thanks! That's great.
Forrest Johnson
53:34
also offer short, easily digestible training videos
Ram Subedi
53:34
I assume there's a shareable video of student portal that we can share with out students?
Ishrat Rahman
53:36
Great!
Deepa
53:43
Do you have a video lecture that covers some of the material Brooke is reviewing? It would be great to have something like that available on Blackboard.
Forrest Johnson
53:45
@Ram yes
Pamela Wessells
53:58
The Assessment Centers will be posting the documents on the Assessment & Testing Center website under Academic Testing for both faculty and students
Forrest Johnson
54:02
@Deepa yes
EJADACKI
55:02
can students see their past exams? to review?
Monique Peters - Munro
56:24
where do you go to see the time a student completed a test?
Leah Allen
56:30
How different is the process for the student when connecting to automated vs live proctoring?
Richard Gottfried-CPA
57:03
do the grades convert to the BB gradebook?
Ram Subedi
57:03
What was your answer earlier about student who is disconnected while taking an exam? I missed that
Donna
57:48
You're welcome, Ishrat!
Carlotta Amaduzzi
57:53
Thank you - I need to leave - Please let me know where this information is going to be shared with MC - Carlotta.Amaduzzi@montgomerycollege.edu
Richard Gottfried-CPA
58:10
or do we have to take the grades off of examity and enter them manually into bb gradebook?
Leah Allen
58:43
Great, thank you!
Ishrat Rahman
59:23
Very informative and helpful session!! Thank you all very much
Ram Subedi
01:00:18
If the test platform takes a few clicks to get through, how does that work after authentication?
Atul Roy
01:00:21
The link in the blackboard is called "Academic Testing" and should be available soon (before the end of this week?)
Leah Allen
01:00:43
I agree with Ishrat! I'm excited to try this system...seems much more straightforward than what we were using
Ishrat Rahman
01:00:54
Can you please answer the question about external website
Margaret Tabiri
01:01:12
If there's a step by step instructions can you please send?
Rachel Saidi
01:02:20
yes please - a document with instructions and all contact information would be greatly appreciated. thank you
Ishrat Rahman
01:02:48
if I wantstudents need to use a website for the exam can we set it up?
Ishrat Rahman
01:03:09
sorry, can't type as fast as you...
Richard Gottfried-CPA
01:05:26
can we have the slides to show the department faculty?
Ram Subedi

Brooke and Forrest: What if you're off on vacation?
Ram Subedi
01:05:43
:)
Ishrat Rahman
01:06:03
thank you!!
Monique Peters - Munro
01:06:14
Can students upload files during test?
Monica Mellini
01:06:51
If students take the exam asynchronously, what will prevent them from saving their solutions (as in Excel files) and distributing them to other class members?
Monique Peters - Munro
01:07:18
Different versions
Atul Roy
01:07:24
Can they use cell phone to take pictures of work to upload?
Ishrat Rahman
01:07:36
Can students take screenshot?
Ishrat Rahman
01:07:53
or screen recording?
Ram Subedi
01:08:21
What's the price difference for Live vs Auto for the college?
Ram Subedi
01:08:36
if that info is public.
Monique Peters - Munro
01:09:16
Do students pay anything?
Ishrat Rahman
01:09:19
do you require students to delete screen recording apps?
Ishrat Rahman
01:09:55
Lockdown browser does that
Ram Subedi
01:09:58
Can the AI detect keyloggers?
Ishrat Rahman
