Online Proctored Test Services
Description of Online Proctoring Test Services
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.
