I am having technical problems trying to launch the remotely proctored online exam, what should I do?
You may visit ProProctor’s Common Technical Issues webpage to see if the issue you are experiencing is addressed in any of the common technical issues articles, and be sure to read the ProProctor User Guide from cover to cover.
For specific instructions on how to install the ProProctor application, follow the instructions in the ProProctor Software Installation Guide for either a Windows or Mac operating system. In addition, check your antivirus software to ensure that the ProProctor application is added to the exclusions list and is excluded from the antivirus scan scope while taking your online exam.
If your specific issue is not addressed, contact ProProctor Technical Support who will provide assistance to troubleshoot errors (you may need to switch Ad-blocker software off, in order to launch the technical support chat session). After 30 minutes of troubleshooting without successfully resolving the technical issue, you will be given the option by Prometric to reschedule your exam.
What should I do if I logged into ProProctor and the Readiness Agent does not show up?
Once the connection is established with ProProctor, the Readiness Agent should show up within a few minutes. If the Readiness Agent does not show up within 10-15 minutes (maximum), it is most likely that the connection was not properly established and therefore, the Readiness Agent is not aware that you are waiting in the “lobby area” for virtual check-in. If this happens, you should exit the system and relaunch ProProctor. If you continue to experience an extended wait time, visit the ProProctor help page and contact technical support via chat (this is the fastest method for assistance).
I am having technical problems during my remote proctored online exam, what should I do?
A Remote Proctor will be supervising your exam during its entire duration. You must contact the Remote Proctor via chat or audio if:
- You experience a problem with your computer
- An error message appears on the computer screen (do not clear the message)
- You need to contact the Proctor for any other reason
What happens if I am disconnected from the ProProctor application more than once?
If you are disconnected from the ProProctor application three times, you will be asked by the Remote Proctor to reschedule your exam.
I have tried contacting Prometric Technical Support and can’t get through. What can I do in order to reach them?
'Chat' is the best way to reach Prometric, rather than calling them by phone. In order to access Technical Support more quickly, it might be helpful to contact them outside of peak hours. Please review the ProProctor User Guide in detail (cover-to-cover) and review common technical issues prior to your exam to ensure that all system requirements are met. Remember, ProProctor is web browser-specific and requires the current version of Google Chrome.
