Why are certified assessments proctored?
Some CodeSignal certified assessments include remote proctoring and an identity verification step in order to ensure the validity of your results. You will see whether or not proctoring is required in your Test Center before you take the assessment.
How does proctoring work?
Prior to the test, you will be prompted to share your camera, microphone, and screen for the duration of the test. You will also be prompted to show your government-issued photo ID to validate your identity. Once you complete the assessment, CodeSignal will review the recording to ensure that all assessment rules are followed and if so, we will certify your results and share them with the company who requested them.
Proctoring has no impact on the score you receive; all scores are calculated automatically by the CodeSignal system.
How is my identification and proctoring data used, and how long is it stored?
CodeSignal does not use identification and proctoring data for any purpose other than to ensure you have completed the evaluation fairly. Identification and proctoring data is reviewed by CodeSignal only and is stored for 14 days, then deleted. It will not be shared with the company who requested your coding report. The company who requested your coding report will simply receive a copy of your assessment result and score.
Can I opt in to proctoring if it is not required?
Yes. If the company who requested your results does not require proctoring for the assessment, you can still opt in to proctoring before proceeding with the test. This increases the likelihood that your assessment result will be accepted by other companies using CodeSignal.
What should I do if I have two pending certified assessment invitations, but only one requires proctoring?
In this case, you must complete the proctored assessment first. If you defer the proctored assessment request, you will be prompted to proceed with proctoring enabled when you take the assessment that does not require proctoring.
If you would like to proceed ONLY with your non-proctored request, you must decline the proctored request and toggle off the opt-in to proctoring at this stage.
