We have successfully pushed an update to all instances residing in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the European Union. This update includes third-party assessment support for the Lockdown App and Live Proctoring, AI-enhanced ID verification for the Lockdown App, a new Assessment tab for the LTI app, presets settings for Automated Proctoring and the Lockdown App, and new analytics for Institution and Course Reports.
- Monitor Third-Party Assessments Integrated With Either Verity Lockdown App or Live Proctoring
Building on our support for third-party assessments through the Verity Browser Extension, we now provide the monitoring of assessments through the Verity Lockdown App and Live Proctoring. The Lockdown App offers robust measures to enforce strict assessment protocols, including:
- Access to only the Lockdown App during assessments.
- Recording of user inputs, such as keystrokes and clipboard activity.
- Disabling file downloads.
In addition, Live Proctoring provides live video recordings of students as they complete their assessments. By choosing either one or both, users can create the most secure environment for their third-party assessments.
- Optional AI-Enhanced ID Verification
The Verity Lockdown App provides ID verification through AI-enhanced facial recognition software. Users can seamlessly capture and upload an image of their ID and face, allowing Verity Lockdown to perform advanced analysis to determine the authenticity of the match. We expect to release a similar capability to the Verity Browser Extension in a near-term release.
- Access All Proctored Assessments Directly from the LMS-Integrated Verity App
To optimize the student experience, we have established a centralized location that contains all proctored assessments. From the new Assessment tab, students can select their desired quiz or third-party assessment and access it through their browser or the Verity Lockdown App.
- Proctor Setting Presets for the Browser Extension and Lockdown App
To conveniently access the preferred proctoring mode for assessments, we have added presets to select either Automated Proctoring or Lockdown App settings.
- New Live Proctoring Analytics for Institution and Course Reports
To provide a greater depth of analysis for our reports, institution reports will now feature a monthly count of quizzes taken and live sessions created. Administrators can review these analytics to determine the needs of their institution for various proctoring modes.
The Course Report offers a comprehensive table showcasing Students’ Live Experience, which includes a detailed list of registered sessions for each student and their corresponding attendance record.
