Behaviour and environment guidelines

Your behaviour and the environment around you will be monitored while taking a test to make sure the required conditions are met. Use the following guidelines to help you understand the requirements and prepare for your test.

Your expected behaviour

During your test, sit directly in front of your computer screen and ensure you are always clearly visible.

Behaviours that are not permitted

Actions and behaviours not permitted during your test are:

  • Answering or checking your phone
  • Allowing another person to enter your test space
  • Looking away from your computer screen for an extended period of time

The video below provides a demonstration of the behaviour guidelines.

Environment guidelines

Use the following guidelines to make sure you set up your test environment to ensure the required conditions are met.

  • Use a private testing area
    Sit upright in an area where other people won’t talk and cannot pass behind you.
  • Turn off all noise-making devices
    Mobile phones set to vibrate emit detectable sound and any sound from a mobile device could be flagged to your instructor.
  • Ensure your face is clearly visible
    Hair, sunglasses, hats or anything that covers your face can cause test to be flagged to your instructor. Eye glasses are accepted.
  • Close irrelevant tabs and windows
    The only tabs and windows open during the session should be those required for the completion of the test. Screenshots will be taken of suspicious activity and shown to your instructor.
  • Sit directly in front of your webcam
    Make sure to stay in the middle of the webcam’s view. Leaving the frame or looking away from the test could be flagged to your instructor.
  • Create the proper lighting
    Sit in a consistently well-lit room with as plain a background as possible.
  • Only one keyboard, mouse, and monitor
    Multiple hardware devices connected to your computer can result in a policy violation. Take time to setup your workstation accordingly.
  • Food or drinks may not be allowed
    Check with your testing institution as it may allow this, if not, eating or drinking during the assessment may result in disqualification.
  • Personal items not allowed
    Sunglasses, keys, wallets, mobile devices and other items not necessary for testing are not allowed.
