Maplesoft and Examity Partner to Introduce Online Proctoring Capabilities for Testing and Assessment Solutions in Maple T.A.

Waterloo, Canada; 03 September 2015: Maplesoft and Examity today announced a collaboration that would strengthen the integrity and efficiency of online testing and assessment. The partnership brings together Examity’s online proctoring capabilities with Maplesoft’s online testing and assessment platform, Maple T.A. Instructors can now utilize Examity’s online proctoring tools and services while administering online tests in Maple T.A.

Maplesoft's partnership with Examity will allow instructors to utilize online proctoring tools and services while administering online tests in Maple T.A.

Examity is a secure and reliable remote proctoring service that gives institutions tools that preserve test integrity. Flexible security options for instructors vary from an automated authentication solution, to fully live proctored exam sessions that provide complete transparency. Maple T.A. is a powerful online testing and assessment system designed especially for courses involving mathematics, making it ideal for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses. The coming together of both these platforms will offer test takers and administrators optimal solutions for online testing.

“Due to the rapid growth of online education, there are still some concerns among instructors about the validity of online learning assessments,” said Michael London, President and CEO, Examity. “With this combined solution, professors get technology-assisted services including highly qualified and technically trained proctors who monitor online exams in real-time. With Examity, faculty will get the lowest level of student to proctor ratio in the industry, and the flexibility to make choices of security levels that are appropriate for each exam.”

“Our customers have expressed interest in online proctoring services that ensure that test integrity is not compromised during the assessment process,” said Darren McIntyre, Vice President, Academic Sales, Maplesoft. “By introducing the option to connect seamlessly with Examity, Maple T.A. has further expanded the options available to instructors, and strengthened the credibility of the online testing and assessment system.”

Maple T.A. and Examity are compatible with many course management systems and can be integrated into existing online learning infrastructures.
