New Testing Method for Australia

This time last year I completed my Bachelor of Business at Charles Sturt University, the majority of my studies where done virtually on line at times that worked around my busy work schedule, I did however have the option to travel to campus if needed some face to face time.  I guess what I am saying is each and everyone one of us has a different way of learning and test-taking.

Some people prefer lectures, while others enjoy hands-on labs. Some prefer a traditional classroom environment, while others wish to study (and test) from their comfortable home or office. We recognise there are differences in style, and with some of you in regional areas we also understand you may have logistical concerns – some people simply cannot take time out of a busy week to travel for a class or test centre.

That’s why we are so happy to announce a new options to augment your learning and testing:

Online proctoring

You may have heard that online proctoring is now available through Pearson VUE. This beta offering launched in the United States earlier this year. As of today, online proctoring is now available Australia.

What is online proctoring?

Imagine you have to take a certification exam. Traditionally, you would call or go online to schedule an appointment at a testing centre, take time out of your day to travel to the testing facility, and then take the test.

With online proctoring, you skip all of the excess travel – you can take exams from the comfort of your own office or even your home.

Of course there are some restrictions: You’ll need a web camera, so that the testing moderator can visually sweep the room in which you’re testing, to make sure there are no unauthorized materials available.

Please Note this test-taking method is offered via Pearson VUE, our new exam delivery provider.
