Assessment Services has teamed up with Examity, an online proctoring service, to provide an online testing option for prospective RRC Polytech students. For a list of available test sessions, please check our events calendar.
What is Examity?
Examity is an online proctoring company that enables students to take exams remotely. For more information, please visit Examity’s website.
How does it work?
More detail about each of these steps can be found below. In order to complete online testing with Assessment Services, you must do the following:
Sign up for a test date through RRC Polytech’s events calendar
Set up your Examity profile
Run a computer requirements check
Schedule your assessment
Take your assessment
Wait for your results
What else do I need for my test session?
For every test session, you will require the valid, government-issued photo ID that you used to set up your Examity profile. Other requirements may vary by assessment. In some cases, for example, you will require a voucher code or password.
Additional requirements for your test session will be sent to you via email if applicable, so please follow the directions in any emails you were sent from Assessment Services, Examity, or our third-party vendors.
How much does it cost?
The Assessment Fee for 2020-2021 is $46. More information can be found here.
Payments for online test sessions must be made at least a week before your scheduled test date to ensure you are in our system.
Currently, online proctoring fees are being covered by RRC Polytech. There are no additional fees if an applicant chooses online testing instead of in-person testing; applicants are only responsible for the $46 assessment fee.
How long does testing take?
The length of time allotted for online assessments is the same as tests completed in-person. Information about our specific assessments can be found here. As with in-person test sessions, you are permitted to use the washroom or get something to drink as necessary, but we cannot pause your time or give you additional time if you take a break.
Please ensure you complete your assessment in one session. If you end the proctoring session before you have completed the assessment, you may be able to return to your assessment at a later date, but this cannot be guaranteed. We will deal with these situations on a case-by-case basis.
What about my privacy?
When using Examity for online exams, your webcam and computer screen will be monitored and recorded for the duration of the test. Photo IDs, security questions, and video feeds of the test-taking environment are encrypted to ensure the data is protected from unauthorized access. Only properly authorized people have access to the information that is stored. Should our authorized administrators be required to review a test session, all videos are saved for a prescribed period of time and then deleted. Individual proctor activity is recorded on video and audio. If you have any concerns after your test session, please contact us via email at email@example.com.
When you begin your test through Examity, you will be presented with a user agreement that you must accept before proceeding. Please click on the link and read the document, which is intended to give you a better understanding of the terms you are accepting. Note that the terms and conditions are subject to change; we will do our best to update the plain language version as necessary.
