"What is online "proctoring?"

Imagine you have to take a certification exam. Traditionally, you would call or go online to schedule an appointment at a testing center, take time out of your day to travel to the testing facility, and then take the test.

With online proctoring, you skip all of the excess travel – you can take exams from the comfort of your own office or even your home.

Of course there are some restrictions: You’ll need a web camera, so that the testing moderator can visually sweep the room in which you’re testing, to make sure there are no unauthorized materials available.

There are currently 50 exams available for online proctored delivery, with more to come.
Note this test-taking method is offered via Pearson VUE, our new exam delivery provider."
