Remote exams

Remote proctoring of the Episerver certification exams makes it easy for you to test your Episerver development skills from wherever you’re located in the world.

Using a standard computer webcam with an internet connection, developers can take a proctored exam online affordably – anytime, anywhere. The remote proctoring system authenticates the identity of the exam candidate and captures the entire exam session by using the webcam. The filmed session is reviewed by certified proctors after the exam has been completed and a Passed test is confirmed by Episerver to the individual developers one week later.

Registration

Registration for the remotely-proctored exams is done via the remote certification scheduleThe exam candidate will receive an automatically-generated confirmation e-mail after registration. This will be followed up by further information regarding the test itself, required equipment, date, time zone and start time approximately one week before the exam start.

How does the remote exam work?

Individual e-mails containing the login details and start time for the exam will be sent to the participants via e-mail 24 hours before the exam starts. The start time is set to a six-hour time range, allowing flexibility for all participants within a certain time zone.

When you've browsed to the URL, you will be prompted to install a plug-in, which checks to ensure that a webcam and microphone is available as well as the bandwidth. The plug-in also detects and prevents multiple applications from running before and during the exam.

After showing photo identification and scanning the room with the webcam, you will be able to start the Episerver certification exam with the login details that have been provided. The entire exam session is recorded and if you pass the exam, you will receive verification and confirmation of your results within 5 working days.
