Preparing your Exam Room for Virtual Part II
Taking a virtual exam is quite different from an in-person examination. Because the examination takes place in the candidates' homes or offices, the candidate is responsible for clearing a work space and ensuring there are no prohibited items with them during the examination. During the check-in process, ABPMR staff will be conducting a room scan with the candidate, and candidates are encouraged to prepare their space ahead of time so check-in can go smoothly.
To prepare the desk and room for the exam, candidates should ensure they have the allowed items—and not much else:
- Computer (connected to power) with built-in or external webcam
- Wired headphones or earbuds with microphone
- Government-issued identification
- Drink in a plain container
- Two (2) sheets of blank paper
- One writing utensil
Candidates should check out the graphic below (click to enlarge) to help prepare their space for the exam, and as always, contact the ABPMR with any questions.
