ARE Remote Proctoring

El pasado viernes, 28 de agosto de 2020, la Junta Examinadora de Arquitectos y Arquitectos Paisajistas de Puerto Rico publicaron el siguiente mensaje en su página de Facebook:

”NCARB is excited to announce that Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®) candidates will be able to schedule remote-proctored appointments in mid-November 2020. Changes that will make remote proctoring possible are expected to launch November 16, 2020. As test center closures and limited availability continue to impact candidates’ licensure progress, this new option will provide flexibility to take the exam in a location of the candidates choice. We will send an announcement to all candidates and post this information on on September 1, 2020, and we wanted you to have all of this information in advance – including FAQs specifically designed to help you answer questions about this effort

Key Takeaways:

Expected Monday, November 16, 2020, candidates can schedule remote-proctored appointments through their NCARB Record.

Candidates can still test in-person at Prometric test centers.

The ARE’s content and division structure will not change.

Aspects of the exam’s delivery are being updated for both in-person and remote administrations to increase exam security and provide a more efficient experience.

More information about exam delivery changes will be released in mid-September.

We expect to release updated ARE Guidelines, ARE Handbook, and a new demo exam in October.

These changes will maintain the exam’s rigor, while providing candidates with greater flexibility and accessibility.

In summer 2021, NCARB will switch to a new test administration vendor, PSI, for both in-person and remote testing.”
