    Great, now we're even more concerned about NCARB not knowing what they are doing.

    Can you elaborate on the cable assessment/ CPU on the worksurface? Office computers have a lot of network cords, for remote eligibility would we rewire the console so its on the desk like at Prometric or is the setup below Ok?

    Hey Alexander,

    Without getting a 360 degree view of your space, we can't say whether it meets the requirements for online proctoring or not. Based on the photo, there are a few things that stand out.

    The phone would need to be removed from the desk to maintain a clean desk. The lamp, computer, and all cords would be subject to inspection. Based on the current computer location, it would be very difficult for a proctor to examine everything under the desk. Rewiring the computer so it sits on the desk would certainly make the check-in process and environmental check much easier. You will also need to add a webcam to this configuration. Finally, it looks like there is a window separating this room from another office? One of the requirements of online proctoring is to have a private space. Windows are acceptable as long as the space can remain private. In this case, you would need to close the blinds so someone working in the adjacent office couldn't view the exam.

    That type of lamp doesn't connect to a computer but only to AC power. However, it appears that it might be able to be unmounted from the table. Temporary removal of it (if it can be), would make things easier to get the exam hooked up. 

    Alexander, if it can be removed from the desk, for the exam, it might be best to to do so. You probably can remount it, later. Since you are in an office, you probably have Fluorescent light fixtures (or LED bulbs) or something along these lines. Use that for the lighting for the exam.
