The ATI TEAS Online Remote Proctored Exam

The ATI TEAS Online Remote Proctored Exam

ATI – the creator of the ATI TEAS Exam – is partnering with Proctorio to virtually proctor the TEAS Exam, allowing you to take the exam from nearly anywhere with a strong internet connection.

So how does it work? Proctorio is a remote proctoring platform that uses machine learning to proctor students from wherever they may be. The remote proctored ATI TEAS Exam offers a variety of secure exam settings including video, audio, and screen recording designed to maintain the integrity of the assessment and ensure uncompromised exam results.

What are my options for taking the ATI TEAS Exam?

You can take the ATI TEAS Exam through one of three venues:

  • TEAS – at an institution either on-campus or online using remote proctoring
  • TEAS at ATI – an online exam using ATI Remote Proctors
  • TEAS at PSI – in-person at a PSI National Testing Center

Contact the school in which you are applying before registering for the TEAS.

Each school has their own requirements for how their students take the TEAS Exam. This is why you will see three different links for registration: TEAS (at your school); TEAS at ATI (online remote proctored by ATI) or TEAS at PSI (at a PSI National Testing Center).

It’s the exact same TEAS Exam. With both the on-campus (in-person) version of the ATI TEAS Exam and the online remote version of the ATI TEAS Exam, test takers can expect the following:

  • You need a government issued photo ID, as well as ATI username and password.
  • Proctors are monitoring for odd or disruptive behavior. Do not engage in misconduct or disruption. If you do, you will be dismissed, and your exam will not be scored.
  • The exam will be 209 minutes in length, comprised of 170 questions set up in a multiple-choice format with four-option answers.
  • Questions are designed to test the basic academic skills you will need to perform in class in the areas of: Reading, Math, Science, and English and Language Usage.
  • A 4-function calculator WILL be provided. In the online version of the exam, a drop-down calculator is built-in for student use.
  • Scratch paper may be used during the exam. Note: It is not to be used before the exam and must be destroyed following the completion of the exam.
  • You will be given an optional, 10-minute break following the Math section of the exam.

During this time, you will still be monitored via webcam and audio. Compared to the in-person version of ATI TEAS Exam, the remote version of the ATI TEAS Exam requires additional tech requirements to maintain the integrity of the assessment and ensure uncompromised exam results.

If you are taking a remote proctored exam through an institution or testing center, you will need to contact that school in order to understand their accommodations policy. Each school will determine their own policy for accommodations.

If you are taking the ATI TEAS Remote Proctored Exam at ATI, these are the accommodations set forth for the TEAS exam:

Accommodations may be available to individuals with documented disabilities pursuant to the American with Disabilities Act (ADA). ATI provides reasonable testing accommodations to candidates whose documented disabilities or other qualifying medical conditions hinder their ability to take the examination under standard conditions. To be considered for special accommodations, please notify ATI with the information below. Please be aware that submission of a request for an accommodation does not guarantee testing accommodations. Decisions will be made on a case - by - case basis considering the information submitted and in accordance with the law.

Requests for accommodations will be processed as quickly as possible. Candidates should allow for a minimum of 30 days for processing, with the understanding that some cases may take longer. Candidates should include all the required documentation (see instructions below for what is required) with their initial request

To be considered for Accommodations, please send the following to [email protected] at least 30 days prior to testing/signing up for a testing date:

Attach a letter from an objective physician or healthcare professional qualified to diagnose the disability or medical condition and render an opinion as to the need for an accommodation. An “objective” professional is one who is not the requestor or related to the requestor. The letter must be dated within 2 years of the anticipated date of your exam. If you are a high school student, or post-secondary student who is within 2 years of high school graduation, an Individual Educational Plan (IEP) may be used in lieu of the letter provided the IEP is actively in place.  The letter or IEP MUST include the following: 

a. The specific disability/diagnosis. Mental/emotional disabilities must be accompanied by a numerical DSM - IV classification code. 

b. A brief explanation of how this condition limits the candidate’s ability to take the exam under standard conditions.

c. If this is not a permanent disability or diagnosis, include date first diagnosed, approximate duration, and method used to make the diagnosis.

d. Specific accommodations required. These accommodations should be adequate without creating an unfair advantage. Please note that candidates who require extra time to complete the exam will be given 1 1/2 times the standard allotted time.  If more time is needed, the letter or IEP must specifically state how much time is needed and why that amount of time is required.

The ATI TEAS, or Test of Essential Academic Skills, is designed specifically to assess a student's preparedness entering the health science fields.

The ATI TEAS test is comprised of 170 questions set up in a multiple-choice format with four-option answers. Questions are designed to test the basic academic skills you will need to perform in class in the areas of: Reading, Math, Science, and English and Language Usage.
