In some instances, how you register for the ParaPro can affect both your fees and testing
experience. Computer-based testing is administered at Prometric test centers as well as participating school districts, regional offices of education and other agencies. Alternatively, at home testing is delivered remotely under the supervision of an online proctor. While it might initially seem an advantage to take the test from your home or workplace rather than traveling to a testing center, there are several factors to consider when deciding what scenario to choose.
At home testing has several technical requirements you will want to verify you have before registering. It is possible to run an equipment readiness check to ensure that your operating system is compatible. Additionally, there are requirements for your environment and testing space that need to be adhered to such as no one else may be present in the room or enter the room for the duration of the exam otherwise your exam will be terminated and/or your results invalidated.
