That's awesome! I am just cautious as that provider has a bad track record and security or data breaches... I don't think the system they use is all that bad, in terms of technology... each proctoring provider has their ups/downs, it's not their service I am worried about, it's the data that they can get and also your personal details that prospective hackers may get their hands on... I might try them though on an older laptop that doesn't have any important files...

I took 4 CLEP's with proctortrack last year. And 3 at a testing center. 

the experience wasn't horrible on proctortrack, but it could be improved. 

1) the exit test button should be removed as I had trouble with it also (thank God I had a semi-attentive proctor that time)
2) once the proctor tried to help me end the test thinking that I was done when I still had half the test left. I never said anything to him about ending the test.


Overall it's wasn't too bad in my experience.

i would recommend it to anyone who wants to take a CLEP test because it was very convenient to be able to take the test at home as compared to driving to and from a test.

I just took a proctored exam and it was an easy experience. Just follow what the proctor says and click continue at the end of your test to actually get to your scores, do not click out right away. I did not have any technical issues.

Have you taken a CLEP exam using Proctortrack? If so, how was your experience? Be sure to respond to the poll at the top of this page!

For more information on taking your CLEP with Proctortrack, check out our article on it:
How to Take Your CLEP Exam Online

I used it for the first time yesterday and it was okay once everything got set up, but definitely not as easy as just waltzing into a local test center. It's still a viable option and thankfully, saved on gas. 

Here's how it worked:
1. I selected the option in the checkout with College Board
2. I was sent info for the Proctortrack registration and "verification" which took my facial photo and a pic of my ID.
3. Once approved, I was allowed to schedule on the Proctortrack site. You have to download 2 pieces of software (Chrome and the testing program) before or on the day.
4. The day of, I couldn't do anything until the exact time. I get on and you go agree to all the things - no food, no paper, etc. etc. - and then download an additional piece of software which will connect you to your proctor. 

^^ I got stuck here because I was using my son's Windows machine on my own login, and he didn't have microphone or camera turned on. So I had to quickly fix that before I could finish my day-of setup. But after that it just took forever with the proctor asking me to agree to things, telling me about exiting the test, having me scan my room and desk, etc. I finally started around 15 after my scheduled time.

I scored a 69, fwiw!
