“Colleges and employers are no longer asking whether they should implement online learning — they’re asking how they can do it in ways that preserve the integrity of the educational experience,” said Michael London, Founder and CEO of Examity. “Our work is about validating learning outcomes as a growing number of organizations turn to online exams to make high-quality education more accessible.”
Examity’s continued growth reflects the rising demand for secure online assessment solutions, as digital learning becomes increasingly popular among both higher education institutions and employers. Recent research suggests that more than one-third of all college students take at least one course online, and nine in 10 employers offer digital learning to meet the needs of workers who value the flexibility and personalization of online programs.
Examity’s solution is unique in that it provides a variety of proctoring modalities, from automated through to live, for a diverse cross-section of partners, including Boston University, Amazon, Western Governors University, Indiana University, and Coursera. The company’s proprietary technology leverages AI and machine learning to protect exam content, ensure test integrity, and streamline the online assessment experience.
Examity has grown by 542% since 2015, and was recognized last year by Deloitte’s Fast 500 as the fastest-growing Edtech company in North America. Since January, the company has welcomed 15 new team members to its recently opened Newton, MA office, and plans to hire as many as 75 more employees by the end of 2019.
