    Some thoughts about online proctor exams:

    Microsoft provides Pearson VUE with these exams. How is that controlled?
    To take a test in an official testing center seems to be the best choice. Everything is official. You have a direct contact in front.

    The online proctored exams are delivered by Pearson online from anywhere on that globe (it seems to come from India in my case). Who controls that these online exams are not manipulated? Is there a protocol from Microsoft (Pearson)? Is this monitored by Microsoft (Pearson)? Are these online exams verifiable on authenticity? We are right now in a time where IT security is a big issue. You get an exam on your PC at home from anyone and anywhere on that globe. What happened with that exam between Microsoft and you? β€œMicrosoft Runs on Trust.” Can you trust someone you do not see and you do not know where that person is located? I would recommend Microsoft (Pearson) to provide the online exams with a checksum. The test takers can validate the authenticity and integrity of the exams and can be sure that these exams are not manipulated by a third party.

    Hi

    I just wanted to find out, in terms of the four-walled area you write in – can there be window in one of the walls or must it be completely closed in with no windows?

    Regards
