NEWTON, Mass., Oct. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Examity, the global leader in learning validation and online proctoring, today announced the opening of its new headquarters in Newton, MA. The company's move to the former location of travel site TripAdvisor reflects its rapid growth as colleges and employers place an increased emphasis on the integrity and security of online testing.
"In an era where nearly one-third of all college students now take at least one course online, test integrity and security are central to the quality conversation in U.S. higher education," said Michael London, Founder and CEO of Examity. "Our expansion is a testament to our team's relentless commitment to innovating in a way that ensures our solution is several steps ahead of the curve. Our application of AI and predictive analytics in online proctoring has transformed the field across higher education, professional certifications, and beyond."
Founded in 2013, Examity was the first platform to provide live, record-and-review, and fully automated proctoring options driven by AI and machine learning technology. Recently named the sixth fastest-growing company in Massachusetts, Examity works with a diverse cross-section of companies and education institutions including Amazon, Northeastern University, Texas A&M, and Washington State University to provide flexible online proctoring solutions designed to address the needs of institutions, standardized tests and certification programs.
Examity, which has raised $22 million from leading social impact and venture investors, acquired the Atlanta-based proctoring provider BVirtual earlier this year, broadening its reach to include hundreds of new partnerships worldwide. In moving to Newton, Examity joins the N2Innovation District, which houses some of the nation's most forward-thinking companies.
Examity was founded to meet the needs of the growing number of online education and certification programs looking to ensure integrity. Examity provides a cost effective and flexible test integrity solution including live, recorded and automated options. Since its founding five years ago, Examity has partnered with 500+ institutions and certification programs worldwide.
