Online Proctored Test Services

Description of Online Proctoring Test Services

If you choose to take the test through Pearson VUE’s online proctoring platform, in addition to any other requirements listed in this Privacy Policy, you will be monitored over the Internet through your computer via your webcam and microphone. Online proctoring means that you will log on to a test platform through the internet to take your test and you will be monitored during your entire testing session in real-time so that your face, voice, desk and workspace will be captured and a recording will be made of these images for the purposes of test security and the integrity of the testing process. It is your responsibility to monitor your online proctored testing environment. You must make sure that only you will be recorded during your testing session and that no one else will be physically in the room where you are testing and that no one speaks to you during your testing session. If at any time during an online proctored testing session another person enters the workspace or if another person’s voice is detected on the audio recording your testing session may be immediately terminated and the test stopped. If this event occurs, you will not receive a test refund or be credited for any portion of the test fee.

In some cases, we may elect to automate the check-in process. During this automated check-in process, you will check yourself in, upload the photo you’ve taken of yourself, and share your identification documents (“IDs”) on camera. Images of your IDs will be used for the purpose of ID validation through the use of ID authentication protocols. We will use the ID authentication protocols in conjunction with biometric facial comparison technology to authenticate your identity. You understand and agree that Pearson VUE may use facial comparison technology for the purpose of verifying your identity during the testing session by comparing your facial image to that presented on your ID and to your facial images captured during the testing session. In addition, you agree that Pearson VUE, for its internal use only, may use images of your IDs for the purpose of further developing, upgrading, and improving our applications and systems.

The video and audio recordings are standard test procedures for all online proctored tests and your video and audio recording will be used for purposes of identity verification, remote observation, incident resolution, such as fraud prevention, test security, and for the integrity of the test and the testing process.

Personal Data Collected for Online Proctoring Test Services

All of the same Personal Data that we collect or receive as described above applies to you when you register to take an online proctored test. Prior to the start of your online proctored test you may be required to hold up your ID documentation, (for example your driver license, passport or other approved ID that Pearson VUE designates), to be recorded on the video for the purpose of identity verification. The collection of such data is optional, but necessary if you choose to use the online proctoring function.
