Q: Will I be able to take notes during my Live Remote Proctoring (LRP) session?
A: Prometric offers a Scratchpad, which will open as a floating window for test takers to capture digital notes during their Readiness Test. Any notes that the test taker includes on the Scratchpad will be retained during the entire duration of the test and will be purged at the conclusion of the test. This scratchpad will replace the opportunity for candidates to have blank pieces of scratch paper to use, during the test.
