Proctoring cover

Proctoring Best Practices

This guide is intended to identify best practices in test proctoring, which may differ from practices currently used by certain test publishers, sponsors, or test centers. While the nature of individual testing programs is highly variable, they all operate on the same general principles. Thus, this guide should be applicable to test administration across a wide variety of programs (e.g., admissions, certification, licensure, credentialing) and settings (e.g., professional, educational, employment). In making determinations about what constitutes best practices, the sponsors of this guide gave primary consideration to those practices that promoted test security, maintained standardization, facilitated accessibility, and ensured the fair and respectful treatment of all test takers.
