Preparing the room and your computer to take MET at home

Before you register:

  • You will need a computer with a Windows-based operating system. Mac iOS 10.13 or higher is also supported. Phones and tablets are not compatible. Headphones need to be wired.
  • Install Google Chrome
  • Reserve a quiet, private room that is free of interruptions for the duration of your exam.

Before taking the test:

  • Make sure your computer is up-to-date. Install any suggested updates prior to taking the test.
  • Test your equipment. Make sure your microphone, speakers, and camera are on. Adjust your volume and charge all wireless devices, including your keyboard, mouse, headset, and laptop.
  • Install ProProctor, the software to implement the secure administration of the test. You will need to create an account to log in.
  • If you’re using wireless instead of a hardwired connection, others in your home should be dissuaded from streaming content or engaging in other high-bandwidth activities while you’re taking the exam.
  • Cell phones and other electronic devices are not allowed for testing and must be removed from your workspace.
  • Your test taking area must be clear of unnecessary materials (i.e. anything that promotes cheating or that you wouldn’t want to appear on screen).
  • Your video camera needs to be on during the test session. Make sure it is free of obstructions, well-lit, and displays a clear view of you and your workspace.
