We have successfully pushed an update to all instances residing in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the European Union. This update includes custom video tutorials for first-time users of Verity, the ability to monitor third-party assessments, Verity Live proctoring support, an integrated updated checker for the Verity Lockdown App, and a countdown timer for live assessment in the Verity Lockdown App.
- Improved Proctoring Workflow of Third-Party Tools Across all LMSs
Previously, we presented Canvas users with the option to monitor third-party assessments using Verity. To improve the process, we now offer an integrated system within the Verity LTI app, which allows users to seamlessly add assessments and apply proctor settings to ensure a secure environment. This approach enables all Learning Management Systems supported by Verity to benefit from its comprehensive monitoring capabilities during students’ assessments for virtually any third-party tool. To learn how to use this feature, please visit our guide on Creating a Proctored Third-Party Assessment with YuJa Verity.
- New LMS-Specific “First Time User” Video Tutorials for Students
Starting a Verity proctored assessment is easier than ever with our new LMS-specific video tutorials integrated right into the LMS. These videos have been specifically designed to assist first-time students in effortlessly navigating the Verity authentication process. With our user-friendly interface and step-by-step guidance, students can now start their assessments with ease. With these steps in place, we’re committed to guiding students through their proctored experience, ensuring assessments are started in a timely manner.
- Enable the Verity Lockdown App for Live Proctoring Sessions
In continuing to provide the most secure environment for proctors and students, our new Verity Lockdown App works seamlessly with Verity Live proctoring. By offering strict video-recording measures through the Verity Lockdown App, proctors can be assured students are unable to end their recordings during their assessment.
- Integrated Update Checker for the Verity Lockdown App
To provide the most up-to-date version of the Verity Lockdown App, we now automatically check to ensure that the latest release is installed. If the application is outdated, an automated message will present users with the option to update the Verity Lockdown App.
- New Countdown Timer for Live Assessments in the Verity Lockdown App
To enhance the live assessment experience in the Verity Lockdown App, students will be presented with a countdown timer when entering their assessments early. This feature ensures that students have clear and accurate information about the exact start time of their assessments.
