Online Proctored Exam

Before taking an online proctored exam, ensure you do the following:

  1. Set up and test your computer at least 24 hours before the exam start time, so if an issue arises that prevents you from taking the exam, you may reschedule the exam without paying a fee.
  2. Review the requirements and instructions for online proctored exams several days before your exam to ensure you have the correct hardware and software.
  3. You must schedule your exam at least 24 hours before the exam start time.
  4. You will need an internal or external webcam.
  5. Don’t use two monitors.
  6. You should take the exam alone in a quiet place, as you will be monitored and noise or busy surroundings may cause the proctor to suspend your exam.
  7. Don’t use headphones for the duration of the exam.
  8. Help or tutoring during an exam is strictly prohibited.

Signing in to take your certification exam

On the day of your exam, before the exam start time, you must log in to Webassessor. Acquia recommends you take a few minutes to prepare your workspace and confirm with the proctor that you are ready to take the test. When you are ready, click Launch Exam to begin the exam.

No-Show Policy

Acquia has a strict no-show policy. If you miss your scheduled time for an exam (online or onsite), you forfeit that test. Since proctors monitor scheduled exams, Acquia doesn’t provide a refund for no-shows. You must register and pay for the exam again or use a new voucher to pay for the exam. Setting up your computer to take an online exam takes some time. Acquia recommends setting up and testing your computer at least 24 hours before the exam start time. This way, if you have an issue that prevents you from taking your exam, you will still be able to reschedule without paying a rescheduling fee.

Transferring an exam from online to onsite (and vice versa)

Exams can be changed from online to onsite, or vice versa, as long as this change is made more than 72 hours before your exam (for onsite tests) or more than 24 hours before your exam (for online tests).

To change your exam location, complete the following steps:

  1. Log in to Webassessor.
  2. Click My Assessments in the top menu.
  3. On the resulting page, under Scheduled Exam, select the exam you want to change.
  4. On the resulting page, click Cancel Registration.
  5. Once you have done this, select a new exam from the available options, and follow the standard checkout process.
