AvantProctor Test Monitoring
Avant hires, certifies, and manages all of its own proctors. This allows us to maintain a higher standard of quality assurance, security, and flexibility.
Why Remote Proctoring?
Safeguarding the integrity of our tests assures the scores are a true representation of test takers’ actual language proficiency. All of Avant’s proficiency assessments are required to be proctored by a representative authorized by the organization sponsoring the test.
Remote proctoring allows students, teachers, and business professionals to test securely without traveling to a classroom or testing center.
Test takers ages 13 through adult can take Avant STAMP 4S, STAMP WS, STAMP for ASL Receptive, Arabic Proficiency Test, PLACE and Spanish Heritage Language tests while being remotely monitored by a human proctor to ensure test integrity.
