Online Exam Proctoring
| May 12, 2020
Due to the protocols developed to mitigate COVID-19, test centres have been closed and have not been able to provide learners with the opportunity to take their pre-licensing examinations.
As it became apparent that test centres would be closed for some time, RECA looked to other jurisdictions across Canada and North America to determine potential next steps. At each conference, virtual proctoring was being discussed as a solution. However, RECA had to first ensure virtual proctoring was a viable alternative—with appropriate security measures in place for exams and exam candidates.
To assist learners with continuing through their licensing process, we have partnered with Alberta-sourced parties to create a virtual proctoring system that will be accessed through your myRECA account. We hope to have more details next week.
We expect many learners will want to begin this process right away and may have questions. This process is new for you and our Learner Support team. Consider emailing your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org as an alternative to calling.
We appreciate your patience while we put this system in place.
