This guide aims to explain in detail each step that is involved in hiring a test taker to take the TOEFL Home under ProctorU for you.
The first step is to set up your computer. This involves a lot of technical stuff so I’m not going to bore you with details.
The check-in process is the same for all online tests conducted by ProctorU.
30 minutes before the test begins, log on to your ProctorU account and wait for the hired test taker to get ready.
When the countdown ends, click “Start Session” beside the “Reschedule” button.
The proctor will check your identification document and your testing environment.
Upon your permission, the proctor will gain control of your computer to check your system settings.
Show your identification documents such as a passport or a driver's license.
🦸🏻♀️ I will need to view your photo ID. Could you hold that up to the camera so l am able to read the name, expiration date, and photo？ Keep the ID up to the camera until instructed to remove it.
🦸🏻♀️Please hold your whiteboard or transparency sleeve up to the camera and show the front and back of it.
🦸🏻♀️Now I will need to see all four corners of your monitor. Use a mirror or your front-facing camera. Please show me all four comers of your monitor, If you are using a front-facing camera, Please turn your camera on "selfie" mode and turn the phone screen so it is facing the computer monitor. Hold the phone in front of your face and pan the camera up and down so l am able to see the entire computer clearly.
🦸🏻♀️Now please place your cell phone behind you out of reach and do not access it until after you have completed the exam unless otherwise instructed. Then, using your webcam, show me where it has been placed.
🦸🏻♀️I will also need to see a 360-degree pan around your room. This will include all four walls of the room. the surface you're working on and the floor under your workspace. Please pause and show me each point so that I can see them clearly.
🦸🏻♀️Also I need to see your table and under the table.
🦸🏻♀️May I use your mouse for a moment to check your computer？ I will need to make sure all programs are closed, screenshots are off, and double-check your display settings.
🦸🏻♀️Please show that your ears are free of any listening devices. No headphones will be allowed.
Please remove all watches then show your forearms to the camera.
🦸🏻♀️We are also required to check your eyeglasses. Please hold those up to the camera closely front and back so l can see the frames. Please confirm that these are not electronic glasses. If these are electronic eyeglasses, they must be removed from the testing area completely.
The proctor will run the ETS Browser and log in.
The proctor will provide the Exam ID and Password.
Then the photo you just took during check-in and your exam info will be shown.
When Test Center Regulations are on the screen, click "Continue".
