Pearson OnVUE - Online Excelsior Exams
#1
Hey all, I was browsing the Excelsior website for UExcel Exams and came across this.  I am hoping they can get all their ECE and UExcel exams entirely online so people can use their exams for "graded" credits that are affordable at only $110 per exam for some of the courses, other courses range from $380 and higher... a couple or more are 6 credits...

Basically, a handful of ECE & Uexcel exams are available for testing online with a real time/live proctoring system.  You will need to schedule a time and do the exam with someone watching you on the other end, think of it as alternative to ProctorU.  I don't recall what service they're going to be running, it could be an in-house system made by Pearson themselves...

Great news! they should make their entire UExel exam catalogue completely online!
This will make their exam much more accessible.
Pearson VUE testing center is pretty far away from where I live.

It would definitely be nice if they all went online in the near future. There are plenty of people who couldn't go to a testing center for one reason or another even before the pandemic. Those people should be able to get college credit.

DSST should make their exams available online too. They award ACE credits per their exam... and I don't see why they're not using ProtorU.
