Exam Writing

Beginning in the Summer 2018 term (July 2018 exams), course exams will be written offsite (i.e., in the students’ home or office) using remote, live online proctoring provided by Examity. Exams will be recorded and may be retrieved and analyzed by CICBV, solely for the purpose of ensuring the integrity of the exams. Further information and instructions will be provided as soon as it becomes available.
