In addition to the Standard Rules in Examity, you have the option to choose a few additional rules by checkbox:

  • Handheld calculator
  • Scrap paper
  • Open book
  • Bathroom breaks
  • Drink on desk
  • Online Calculator


Some of these are vague statements, and may be interpreted differently between you and the proctor and the student. To avoid any ambiguity, you should add special instructions to clarify. For example, the proctor may interpret the "handheld calculator" to be a simple 4-function calculator. If you were intending a graphing calculator, specify that in the special instructions. If you select "Online calculator", specify a particular website or how you expect the student to access the calculator.
