What’s the Evidence? Considering Remote Proctoring for Your Assessment
Track: Test Development and Administration
In 2018 NBCRNA undertook a research project to explore differences in outcomes and perceptions between Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA) testing in either In-Person Proctored (Bricks and Mortar) or Remote Proctored (Live Online Proctoring) conditions. A total of 1200 test takers participated in this randomized experimental design study, taking a 150-item four-hour exam. Quantitative information on scores and latency was tabulated and analyzed. Surveys were administered prior to and after the exam administration to collect qualitative information including anxiety levels, preferences and perceived difficulty. This session will explore differences in test-taker performance and reactions, as well as learnings from the sponsoring organization’s perspective about the remote proctoring modality. Test taker differences will be examined in whole as well as by some demographic variables such as gender and age.
