ExamID™ – Auto-Identity Verification


ExamID is an exam integrity tool that confirms Exam Takers’ identities prior to allowing access to an assessment using Examplify for Windows or Macintosh. (Note: Examplify for iPad does not currently support ExamID.) By verifying an Exam Taker’s identity, ExamID deters exam-taker impersonation, while streamlining exam check-in and verification processes.
