Virtual Proctoring Overview
CTECS is pleased to announce that we are now able to offer a virtual proctoring option for CTECS assessments, which include both end-of-program and Workplace Readiness Skills!
Testing will be available beginning May 4, 2020.
All tests must be scheduled. Tests may be administered Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m., EDT only.
Email Marina McHatton (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let her know that you would like to administer assessments, the approximate number of students you plan to test, and the date/time you plan to test. This information is needed so that CTECS can provide appropriate access and monitor the testing process each day.
CTECS virtual proctoring will enable students to test in their home learning environment. The checks and balances CTECS has put in place will allow students to prepare for a successful testing experience. Virtual proctoring will not replace a traditional proctored test but is being offered due to the extenuating circumstances with COVID-19 that has caused traditional lab space to be unavailable. The virtual proctoring system works seamlessly with E-SESS with which test site administrators and students are already familiar.
