Features And Benefits
Students will take ISEE Online At Home via ProProctor using a remote testing system developed by Prometric that uses advanced technologies and experienced proctoring staff to provide convenient and easy-to-use access to the ISEE. Once the test launches, ProProctor's unique browser creates a secure exam experience by locking down the student's testing device so that they are unable to access any other websites, applications, or screen capture exam content. Students using this option will have the same ISEE test structure for which they have prepared, and schools will receive valid and reliable test scores within 48 hours for use in the admission process. The ProProctor solution is identical in content, format, on-screen experience, scoring, and pricing as the tests delivered in the Prometric global test center network already used by many families.
Before a student starts the test, a Prometric Readiness Agent will conduct a live scan of the room and desk area to confirm that it meets security requirements using the student’s computer webcam (or an external camera). The agent will also perform a webcam security inspection of the student’s pockets, sleeves, accessories, and glasses (where applicable). Once the inspection is completed, a certified Prometric proctor will use a webcam to monitor the student for the duration of the test. Even though the student will not be able to see the Prometric proctor, they are with the student the entire time and will be able to provide assistance at any point during the test or stop a test if any test regulations are violated during the exam. If needed, parents may assist students with logging into ProProctor and the pre-testing setup.
ISEE At Home via ProProctor is built to minimize remote computer system requirements so that it can be accessed from personal computers or laptops with internet connectivity. It is not available on tablets or smartphones.
