About Online Proctoring

Online Proctoring Is Now Available: Test Remotely, Including from Home!

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is pleased to announce the availability of online proctoring for select assessments in the MEGA program. Online proctoring allows you to take your test securely from your home, school, or business. With just a simple check-in process—involving ID verification, face-matching technology, and a live greeter—you can test without having to travel to a test center.

Phased Rollout of Online Proctoring Availability

The following select MEGA assessments* will become available for online proctoring, in addition to continuing to be available via computer-based testing at test centers.

* Note: Due to technical requirements, certain MEGA assessments may not be offered via online proctoring and will continue to be available via computer-based testing only. For example, tests that require the use of a scanner and tests that include an audio component cannot be administered via online proctoring.

Can I Test Remotely?

Many candidates are eligible for remote testing. Review the following steps to determine if online proctoring is right for you.

Step #1: Make Sure You Have the Right Equipment

You provide your own equipment for testing. You must have access to the following:

  • Required—a desktop or a laptop; tablets and touch screens cannot be used for your test
  • Required—a single monitor; extra monitors are not allowed; you need to remove them from the testing room, if possible, or unplug them
  • Required if using an external monitor with a laptop—you must have an external mouse, keyboard, and webcam and the lid of your laptop must be closed
  • Recommended—a personal computer rather than a work computer, which may have additional security that can interfere with your testing session
