What I am allowed and not allowed to do during the proctored assessment?
Whether you have a live proctor or not does not change what is allowed during your exam.
- If you have a live proctor, he or she may intervene upon any actions or behaviours that are not allowed.
- If you do not have a live proctor, your actions and behaviours are being flagged through our artificial intelligence system and will be reviewed by a professional proctor and/or your organisation.
Actions and behaviours that will be flagged during an assessment:
- Talking aloud: Unless you have an accommodation, talking or whispering aloud during the assessment is not permitted.
- Being out of camera view: Your face, chin to forehead, needs to be in the camera view at all times.
- Anyone entering your testing area: You may not have anyone else in your testing location with you.
- Anyone talking to you while you’re in your testing area: Additional noises, including other people talking to you, while you’re in your assessment are not allowed.
- Looking off-screen: If you aren’t allowed any materials, your eyes should stay on the screen at all times while testing.
- Utilizing materials that are not allowed: You’re only allowed the permitted materials allowed by your organisation.
- Taking pictures or screenshots of the assessment: Taking pictures while in your assessment, including screenshots, is not permitted. If you’re on a Mac and have a live human proctored launch, your proctor will even turn off the ability to use your keyboard screenshot hotkeys.
- Copying and pasting any elements of the assessment: In most cases, our system will not allow you to copy and paste any content from your assessment. Regardless of whether you can or cannot perform this function, our system will capture all events of copy and paste that occur.
- Utilizing a virtual machine: Virtual machines can be detected through the pre-exam system check, and are not permitted.
- Utilizing a secondary monitor: You are only allowed to use one monitor attached to one computer during your assessment.
In some cases, your organisation may specify additional actions/behaviours that are not permitted during your assessment. These actions will be explained to you during the portion of the assessment launch process when you have to agree to the exam rules.
