    I think at this point I've only seen one person in this forum have an okay experience with the new test format.

    Noosheen,

    Thank you for sharing your disheartening experience with the rest of the community.

    I would be curious to know where is the quality control part is on Proctor's end? Test takers are being affected by Proctors with poor internet connection, lag, not knowing proctor rules etc.. It is really important everyone comes forward their negative/ positive remote proctored exam experience.

    Hope you pass your exam!

    Nosheen, thanks for documenting your online exam experience. I read this before my PA online exam yesterday and did not risk taking a break due to fear that the clock would keep running.

    My exam crashed 3/4 of the way into the exam, and when I managed to reconnect, the re-inspection and readout of break rules process indeed took no less than 15 min. Luckily, the clock and exam picked up where the exam crashed without time penalty, but losing that much time would've been very stressful.

    Also, the whiteboard experience is usable as a way to solve math problems. Using pen tool to write out a simple number like 980 was a struggle, gave up and used calculator to keep track of numbers. Cannot imagine trying to solve an actual equation on a harder exam with the whiteboard.

    Jodie, please clarify that you meant that the whiteboard was "unusable" for solving math problems.
