At Home Testing

We are pleased to announce that the ETS® ParaPro Assessment is now available for at home testing. This new option has been introduced to help those prospective and practicing paraprofessionals in your community who are unable to take the test at a testing center or prefer to test remotely.
The ParaPro test at home is administered and monitored using the ProProctor® software from Prometric®. As with other remotely proctored assessments, test takers must meet equipment and environment requirements prior to testing. View a complete list of requirements, which includes software needs to test on a Mac® and PC.
Once test takers have confirmed that their computer and testing room meet the requirements, they will register and schedule their appointment directly with ProProctor. Appointments are available 8 a.m.–5 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday.  Additional information on the ParaPro Assessment and at home testing can be found on our website.
ETS continues to look for opportunities to enhance and expand our testing options and will continue to provide updates as they become available.
Best Regards,
The ParaPro Team
