CLEP home proctoring issues
#11
Just received notification that College Board is refunding our exam and my son can retake the exam at his earliest convenience!

So glad this is behind us.
Crossing our fingers that his remaining 3 exams are uneventful.

We are fighting it, so we will see.

Maybe it's time to call College Board out on social media for using unreliable remote proctoring with so many technical issues. Anyone who has had proctortrack issues should have the 3 months waived and the fee for a second test waived.

I have only taken one work certification proctored online from home and found it terrible. I always did CLEPS at community colleges office and found it way better. May not be an option but I would rather drive to a college for proctoring to offload all the other BS.

I have taken 3 or 4 CLEP exams in a room with a window and I had no problems

My room where I took my test had 2 monitors, a sliding glass door, and two windows. Proctor had me disconnect 2nd monitor and I was good to go.

They need to dump Proctortrack.

Ouch, main reason I don't recommend CLEP @Home often is because it reminds me so much of ProctorU, it's real time, but the killer is the data breach/security issue that is most concerning. If you're really close to a testing site, such as the local college, it may be better to drive a few minutes to the test site instead, or if you like another option that's affordable, Saylor.org or Sophia.org seems like viable options.

Having said that, CLEP/ModernStates is a great partnership program for obtaining credits on the cheap, if it came out earlier, I would have skipped all the StraighterLine courses I took with ProctorU, I didn't have many issues nor affected with their data breach, just two exams out of 30+ was a little iffy. Hang in there and see how the remainder of your 3-4 exams go... switch options if you really need to.
