Examity - Enabling Examity in Canvas (Instructor)

Before using Examity, please contact instructionalcontinuity@provost.wisc.edu with “Examity” in the subject line to discuss important considerations around piloting the tool.

This document outlines how instructors can enable Examity in their Canvas course.

    Examity is available for use in all time-table courses. It is not available for use in non-credit or non-timetable courses. To use Examity, you must add the external tool link to the Examity Service in your Canvas course shell by following the steps outlined below.

    1. Navigate to the Canvas course in which you plan to use Examity.
    2. Click on Modules in the left hand navigation bar.

    3. You must add the Examity Service link to a module in your Canvas course. It does not matter which module contains this link, although it should be easily accessible to students as they will access their exams by clicking this link. This action only needs to be performed once per course. You have two options for adding the Examity Service link to your course.
      • You can create a new module by clicking the +Module button, and titling the new module Examity.
      • You can add the Examity link to a module that already exists.
    4. After you determine in which module you want to add the Examity Service link, click the add item + button in that module.
