Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, EASTERN is working with ATI, who has partnered with Proctorio, to securely proctor assessments, virtually. Proctorio is a remote-monitoring platform that uses artificial intelligence and facial-detection technology to safeguard testing processes. During your assessment, you will be monitored via webcam, microphone and screen share.
The following technical requirements are needed in order to provide testing, remotely:
- Desktop or laptop computer only (no IPads, tablet or phones can be used)
- Webcam: 320×240 VGA resolution (minimum internal or external
- Microphone: Any microphone, either internal or external.
Please be sure you set yourself up for success by:
- Ensure you are using a fully charged laptop or desktop computer with a webcam and microphone.
- Install Google Chrome on your desktop or laptop computer. You will not be able to take the proctored assessment with any other browser.
- Have a school or government-issued ID card available.
- A well-lit, quiet space to take the assessment.
We hope to begin testing the week of April 27, 2020. If you have the technical requirements to test remotely from your home, please register for the TEAS test and we will send you the instructions to begin the process.
If you are unable to test, virtually, we will be sure to reschedule your test date once Governor Wolf lifts the “Stay at Home” order and we can return to the school and begin testing from Eastern Center for Arts and Technology.
Please reply via email to firstname.lastname@example.org , if you are able to test virtually, from your home, so we can arrange your test date with ATI and Proctorio.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me at 215-784-4800 extension 451. Thank you.
