Creating a Digital Signature for Exam Verification
For Quantic students enrolled in the Class of November 2024 and beyond, Quantic partners with BioSig-ID for their exam proctoring services. With BioSig-ID, you will create a 4 character password. When you enroll your unique password, BioSig-ID takes note of how you draw the characters on your mobile or desktop device and notes your unique pattern. Once you’ve created your digital exam signature, using it is easy, just draw 4 characters before your exam and you’re validated to take the exam on that device. As setting up your signature is a multi-step process, we’re here to help!
Step 1: Navigate to your Enrollment Requirements
You can find the requirement set up your digital signature from the Enrollment sidebar on your Home page. Click "Create a digital signature for exam identity verification" to begin setup.
Step 2: Choose a 4-character password
BioSig-ID will automatically detect your device type (mobile or pc) and choose the best device option for your enrollment between the following:
You can see which device option it is expecting you will be using, but you can click to change to any of the others if it selected incorrectly.
Quantic recommends taking the time to set up two different device types. One for your computer (Mouse or TouchPad) and one for your mobile device (TouchScreen). Because BioSig validates on a per-device basis, you will need to go through this setup process twice, once on each device. If you complete both setups at the start of your program, you'll save yourself the time later!
In the DrawPad provided, draw a simple 4-character password. Letters and numbers are highly recommended, but not required. You can find more recommendation in our Tips & Tricks article if you're having trouble getting BioSig-ID to accept your password.
What password should I choose
- Pick a password you can easily remember.
- Letters and numbers are highly recommended, but not required
- Remember, it's how you write that matters, not what it looks like.
Step 3: Confirm your password (twice!)
Once you have chosen a BioSig-ID you are happy with, you will be asked to enter it several more times to confirm your specific pattern of drawing and that it will not be too complex for you to repeat.
A green confirmation message indicates that your password was accepted.

Step 4: Set up a backup Click-ID password
In case your BioSig-ID confirmation fails in the future, BioSig will also ask you to set up a backup password by selecting characters from an onscreen numpad. This Click-ID doesn't need to be the same as your BioSig-ID, but it can be.
Note: If you do not remember your BioSig-ID or Click-ID passwords you can reset these via email.
As you click or touch your selections, dots will appear on the keyboard
You don't need to overthink it, but be aware that when you click on one specific area of the virtual keyboard, you will be expected to repeat that same behavior. We recommend always aiming for the center!
Step 5: The final confirmation
After setting up your BioSig-ID and Click-ID, you will be asked to complete one final confirmation of your BioSig-ID to finalize the process
Tips & Tricks
Write down your BioSig-ID password! This is not a typical typed password.
We recommend making a note so you don't forget what you drew.
Remember, what it looks like doesn't matter. It's how you wrote your password that's important.
