COVID-19 has changed the testing landscape with the widespread closure of “brick and mortar” testing centers and increased interest in, and need for, remote proctoring for exam administration.
Programs considering remote proctoring have a lot of information to digest to make quick and responsible decisions. Thorough discussions now, and sufficient documentation throughout the process, will safeguard exam content and the program’s credibility in the future.
Panelists discuss benefits and challenges to remote proctored exam administration, lessons learned, and concerns moving into the future. Hear lessons learned and guidance to navigate a changing testing environment. Panelists address topics including, but not limited to timelines, questions to ask potential vendors, candidate identification and monitoring, proctor roles and expectations, security processes, addressing candidate and technical issues, related policies and procedures, and documentation needs.
