Several of our customers have reached out to us in the past few weeks asking if candidates could take the COBRA test online from home in order to more easily comply with social distancing guidelines.  We appreciate how this would offer employers more flexibility.

As much as we would like to be able to accommodate this request, it raises concerns -- namely because the candidate would be taking the test in an unproctored and unsupervised setting.  One concern is test security.  Test security is essential to ensure the ongoing usefulness of the test.  If a test is offered online in an unproctored environment could the integrity of that test be compromised?  Another concern is fairness.  What if a candidate gets help from others when they’re taking an unproctored test?

Tech-enabled solutions are starting to emerge which enable online tests to be monitored remotely by humans, or even computers.  The interest in remote proctoring tools will likely grow even more during this current global health crisis.  For the time being, however, we feel it is best to proctor COBRA in-person, albeit while following social distancing and public health guidelines such as wearing face masks, reducing the number of workstations, and sanitizing each workstation with disinfectant wipes before and after each use.
