COMAT Remote-Proctored



In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NBOME offered a self-proctored delivery option in 2020. Although this was effective, some COMs expressed concerns over examination security and administration consistency. In response, the NBOME partnered with its strategic supplier, Internet Testing Systems, to develop a live person, remote-proctored delivery option which was implemented on September 15, 2021.

For the 2021-2022 COMAT testing cycle, there are now three COMAT administration options to provide flexibility in location and proctoring to address COM’s assessment needs: in-person, remote-proctored, and self-proctored.

The remote-proctored delivery option offers:

  • A Zoom-like virtual monitoring of exams by COM proctors
  • A balance of exam security and convenience
  • Robust training for COM proctors
  • An enhanced registration process
  • Different examination day process
  • Real-time communication between proctor and students through an integrated chat/texting feature
  • The ability for a proctor to pause the examination at any time
