Enable Examity Exam Proctoring for Canvas-Integrated CNOWv2

If you use Canvas™, you can prevent cheating by using Examity®. Link to your CNOWv2 exam from Canvas. Your students will continue to be monitored by Examity while they complete their exam in CNOWv2.

Note While Cengage supports our learning platform integrations with several Learning Management Systems, proctoring solutions are third party services that we do not directly support. The LMS and proctoring solution versions we have tested might not be the same versions you use. For this reason, your process and results might vary and Cengage cannot guarantee support for any third party proctoring service.

Examity is a browser extension and works only with Google® Chrome™.

Students will be prompted to download the Examity extension when they open the exam.

You must first create a password protected exam in CNOWv2, and add a link to your exam in Canvas. In order for students to access the exam through the proctoring service, both the link and the module you add it to must be published. However, students should not access the exam directly through this link. To avoid confusion, consider creating a new module titled "Do not access." Let your students know that you will be notified if they attempt to access the exam through the "Do not access" module.
