OnVUE online proctored exam information for MITx - MicroMasters in DEDP

Important to note:

Running a system test confirms whether your device's microphone, internet and webcam are currently functioning. It is your responsibility to ensure the device you're using also meets all the system requirements found in the drop down below, under 'Additional Information'. Please thoroughly review the system requirements well in advance of your appointment. If your device does not meet all the system requirements, you will not be able to successfully launch the OnVUE application to take your exam.

OnVUE online proctored exams allow you to conveniently 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.
