Examinee ID Policy

If the examinee is taking the online-proctored exam in a private location of her choice:

  • In most parts of the world, however, DASCA exams are real-time proctored, and delivered in the private mode keeping the convenience of examinees in mind. Which means you can now take your ABDE™, SBDE™, or ABDA™, SBDA™ or SDS™, PDS™ exams in the convenience of your personal spaces – like your home or your office – after getting your computer machine and exam room ExamStrong™ verified for exam readiness.
  • It is suggested that the examinee should reach her chosen exam room/ location at least 1 hour in advance of the scheduled exam-start time to ensure that the exam room and the computer being used for exam is thoroughly checked, verified and approved for exam-taking by a designated DASCA-authorized testing body.
  • Examinees arriving later than 50 minutes prior to the exam start-time shall not be permitted for taking the exam, and the fee may be forfeited.
  • The examinee must carry two valid forms of ID from the list below - one primary with photo & signature, and one secondary with signature. Both IDs need to be original and current (not expired).
  • No personal items should be taken into the testing room. This includes all kinds of bags, books not authorized by DASCA, notes, phones, tablets, pagers, watches, and wallets. You can read more on the rules in the exam-process documents shared with you.
