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 is answering all the questions we didn’t have the chance to answer during the webinar.
