Extended Abstract

Over the past couple of years, Examity has spoken with hundreds of institutions as we have worked to grow our business and understand potential client needs. Through this process, we have learned a great deal about the major concerns that colleges have with regards to online learning, in particular with regards to test integrity and the risks associated with the loss of institutional credibility. Additionally, we have gained some significant insight into expectations regarding what constitutes a good assessment experience and a fair evaluation. In this session, we will present our findings and share our analysis of what we have learned. Attendees will leave this session with a more complete understanding of remote test proctoring best practices, the threats to institutional integrity, as well as some general trends in the distance learning industry.
