Surpass Partners with Examity to Expand Online Proctoring Services

Surpass and Examity

The partnership complements existing services, providing greater choice for certification bodies.

BTL Surpass and Examity are delighted to announce their partnership for providing technology and services to the certification and licensure industry.

Examity is an internationally renowned online proctoring service provider, and combining the functionality of the Examity remote proctoring platform will enable more flexibility for customers delivering high-stakes assessments remotely, or as part of a hybrid test-centre model.

In summary, the partnership between Surpass and Examity expands the range of benefits within a Surpass remote proctoring solution to include options for:

  • Live remote proctoring with a 1:2 proctor to candidate ratio
  • AI based remote proctoring
  • Secure browser delivery
  • Automated authentication processes
  • Multi-camera proctoring

In the US, Surpass customer organisations have already received ANSI ISO/IEC: 17024 accreditation to administer online proctored exams using Surpass solutions. Examity’s services combined with the Surpass item banking and test delivery technology provides organisations with a leading-edge solution for secure delivery of online exams.

Feedback from customers has proven this to be a desirable service, streamlining communications, and having a single point of contact for the entire test delivery process.

The Examity platform offers a range of choices to best meet the needs of each unique certification program, including the option to conduct live proctoring with a 1:2 ratio of proctors to candidates – something we often hear is highly desirable for high-stakes testing programmes.

The live service offers an extra layer of security, with proctors able to proactively address suspicious behavior, and with interactive real-time onscreen support available when required. If your certification programme is more suited to an automated solution, Examity’s innovative features can be used for client-specific scenarios, utilising machine learning to effectively detect and capture malpractice.

Surpass already offers an existing online proctoring service via a partnership with ProctorExam, another widely respected Surpass Community partner. The service has recently seen an accelerated uptake from clients wanting to allow candidates to continue their qualification safely and securely from home, and the functionality now on offer through Examity will complement this existing service.

“We’re delighted to be partnering with Examity, who are such a well-known and trusted solution within the industry. We have already received incredibly positive feedback from organisations delivering high stakes certification and licensure exams about the unique offering of a 2:1 ratio of candidates to proctors for secure live proctoring, combined with the advanced capabilities of the Surpass item banking and test delivery platform. We see this partnership as a great step forward in our mission to improve the assessment experience for everyone, which is especially important in these challenging times.

Andy McAnulla, President of BTL Surpass Inc.

“BTL Surpass has long been recognised as a trailblazer in the development of innovative approaches to assessment. This partnership is about bringing a new dimension of security and integrity to their industry-leading platform, in ways that will create a more streamlined and secure assessment experience.”
