WP21 Report on the NCCA Assessment of Live Remote Proctoring

In the past few years, certification programs have expressed interest in using live remote proctoring (LRP) as an option for delivering their examination programs. The COVID-19 pandemic, with the mandated closures and other restrictions, has made LRP a necessity rather than a choice for many credentialing programs.
To examine whether a certification program could meet its Standards while using live remote proctoring, the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) undertook an assessment beginning in January 2020 to address this question.
Based on the limited data collected, the NCCA has determined that it is possible for programs to meet the Standards using LRP as a delivery method, provided that implementation is thoughtfully executedImportantly, as LRP is a relatively new delivery method for certification, continued research is needed.
