College of Southern Idaho Identity Verification Process

The College of Southern Idaho (CSI) verifies the identity of a student who participates in an online or hybrid course by requiring the use of a secure sign in and password created by the Office of Information Technology. Students who enroll in online or hybrid courses and programs at CSI must access Canvas, the College’s learning management system, through a secure sign in provided by their CSI user credential.

The College maintains an effective identity verification process for students enrolled in online and hybrid courses and programs to establish that the student enrolled in such a course or program is the same person whose achievements are evaluated and credentialed. This is accomplished by the following:

1. Students in online and hybrid courses submit course work through Canvas or CSI email, the College’s official email system.

2. At least one additional authentication measure is implemented by course instructors in each online or hybrid course:

  1. One on-campus proctored examination or equivalent experience with photo identification verification.
  2. One remotely proctored examination or equivalent experience in an approved testing site or Respondus Monitor. 
  3. One videoconference (Zoom) or in-person meeting with the course instructor with photo identification verification with submission of a major assignment or exam.
  4. A mandatory on-campus session with a graded activity, such as a student presentation or group project.

The instructor’s course syllabus informs online and hybrid students of required campus meetings, authentication measures, test dates, and special equipment (webcam, speakers, headset, etc.) The course syllabus includes a Distance Learning and Testing statement that informs students of test-taking procedures, test sites, associated fees, and student responsibility. Additionally, the course syllabus includes an Integrity statement with related links to Student Code of Conduct and Academic Integrity.
