Online proctored exams

Online proctored exams allow you to conveniently and easily take an exam in the comfort of your home or office while being monitored by an offsite proctor. All communication with the proctor is done in English.

Getting started

To get started with online proctoring, review the following steps which will help determine whether online proctoring is appropriate for you. Online proctored exams have specific technical, system, environment, and testing protocol requirements which have to be met in order to successfully take an exam. Go over them before you register for your exam to make sure that your system is ready when the actual exam time comes.

Step 1. Run system test and exam simulation

Download and run the system test from the same computer and location you will be testing from. The system test will simulate the exam experience and verify whether your system can run the online proctored software. The test includes a webcam, microphone and internet connection check. You will also take a one question exam that will test the secured browser connection. Note that the secured browser will take up your whole screen. This process will take approximately 5 minutes.
