TEAS Exam Remote Proctoring

Posted

Hi, I wanted to know anyone's experience with taking the TEAS remotely (taking mine this month) as far as what they want us to show them in the room, what can you be dinged for when being watched and how well you did on the exam!

I have the same questions. I haven't talked to anyone who has taken it like this.

Hi! When showing them your test area just be sure not to have any electronic devices out such as a phone, ipad, calculator. I had more than two sheets of scratch paper out, a pencil, and a pen.

The school that I'm applying to asked for a minimum score of 60% in each subject. So, if you didn't pass one subject you would have to retake the entire test. The most difficult part of the test for me was the Reading and the English portion. I got a 73.7% in Reading, 96.9% in Math, 85.7% in Science, and a 80.5% in English.

Hope this helps. 😊

Hello,

Just took the TEAS Remove Proctoring. If for some reason your screen freezes during the exam, sign out and sign back in so you don't lose time on that section. You will have to complete the I.D scan and room scan again and wait for the proctor to let you in. The Practice exams from ATI are definitely a great study tool. Definitely go to your A&P1 and A&P2 notes/books to study more in-depth. The ATI science section is simply a brief over view of what they want you to know for that particular part of the anatomy or physiology. So outsource in this section. The remaining Chemistry and biology questions were pretty straight forward. Reading section had long excerpts, some with tough concepts to follow if not focused. Tough reading questions, definitely need to understand the topic and main ideas and form your own understanding.. English, pretty straight forward. Spend 5 weeks studying 6 days a week. Scored an 84% overall. Goodluck!

Hello, I was wondering if we are able to go back check answers in a section if we finish that section with time remaining?

Hello,

Yes you are able to go back if you have time. But remember, they don't give too much extra time. Also, don't second guess yourself. Sometimes the answers we go back and change are the ones we get wrong. Goodluck!

 

Hi there! I just took the TEAS through ATI using their Proctorio (I got a 92.7!) Fortunately I'd used Proctorio before for some of my classes. It's not perfect (and I used to hate it for the invasion of privacy reason) but the fact that it facilitates the TEAS during the Pandemic makes it convenient.

Basically, after buying it, you schedule your particular date and time. CRUCIAL! YOU MUST CONVERT THE TIME THEY GIVE YOU TO YOUR TIME ZONE. I've heard of ppl missing their test time for this reason.

For the test, they give you a "Dry-Run" to help you know what to expect test day. 100% do this. Basically, have a pencil, eraser and SINGLE sheet of notebook paper. CLEAR YOUR DESK. You will have to film it and if they see something suspicious, they may cancel your test. Have your ID ready. You'll have to lift your laptop to film your test area. Make sure you get everything filmed (leave nothing to chance).

My (brief) advice: Move somewhat fast and don't spend too much time on a problem. Many people don't get to all the answers because they spent too long figuring something out. Keep an eye on your time!

Also, use the 'Flag' function to mark questions you want to come back to. At the end of Science and English, you will very likely have some time to go back and check. Math not so much and Reading comprehension I barely finished in time.
