Update to System Requirements

December 2022

Changes to system requirements include:

After January 10, 2023 all Windows users must use at least Windows 10.
Microsoft has announced that Windows 8.1 will no longer be supported and security updates will no longer occur. Due to security considerations, Integrity Advocate will only operate on Windows 10 or newer after January 10 2023. For more information visit Microsoft updates for Windows 8.

System Check Release

August 2022

End User improvements include:

D2L Brightspace and Canvas LMS now support a Check System button prior to starting an activity/ quiz.
Users can now test Integrity Advocate prior to starting their activity/ quiz. When a user clicks on the activity/ quiz that they would like to begin, users are first taken to an introduction page. This page will now include a System Check button that will take the user to a webpage and allows the user to test Integrity Advocate on their computer. This demo does not collect information, it is simply to check camera, microphone, operating system and browser for Integrity Advocate to operate.


Advanced Participant Interface and Integrity Lock Release

July 2022

New Participant Interface improvements include:

Automatically Remove the participant from activity for repeating/black feed.
A participant’s webcam feed can be disrupted for many reasons. Integrity Advocate now has improved handling for each of these reasons. If a participant’s camera is submitting the same image (or a fully black frame) over and over, Integrity Advocate can detect this and quickly remove the participant from the activity. Similarly, if a participant obscures or points their camera anywhere other than on their face, Integrity Advocate can detect the missing presence and likewise remove the participant automatically.

Monitor for and record any attempt to remove Integrity Advocate from the activity to bypass.
Integrity Advocate has added additional detection capabilities in the event that someone tries to tamper with or remove the Integrity Advocate code from the host page. If this happens, the code is automatically repaired, our reviewers are notified and the participant's session may be invalidated.

Greatly improved event management.

Integrity Advocate can now detect camera malfunctions of all sorts, notify participants and remove them from the activities until the camera issue is resolved.

Much improved, simplified participant interface including help videos, etc.
New look and feel to the Integrity Advocate overlay, with simple instructions, new outlines to help participants with taking a portrait and Photo ID image. Help videos have also been integrated to improve the participant experience.

Option for Integrity Lock:

An intuitive and privacy focused lockdown browser that prevents accessing web pages or programs during high stake exams or assessments. Learn more about our lockdown browser.
