Online Proctoring Questions Answered—Part I

Online proctoring is expected to launch on December 14, 2020, along with several important changes to exam navigation, timing, and tools that will impact all candidates—whether testing in-person or remotely. We recently held a live webinar to answer your questions about online proctoring and the exam changes. Now, our staff experts are answering all the questions we didn’t have the chance to answer during the webinar.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll share additional videos covering your questions about setting up for an online proctored appointment, what to expect on test day, the new digital whiteboard, technical/software concerns, accommodations, and more. Please be on the lookout for those posts as we work to provide the answers you need to prepare for online proctoring.
