If you are going to take the at-home version make sure to TEST YOUR MICROPHONE. And I don’t mean just using the ProctorU website. I mean making a whole lot of test recordings. And actually listening to them carefully.
I can’t prove it, but I think a lot of students are getting low speaking scores (and cancelled scores) because of bad microphones.
Moreover, I can state that about 50% of the recordings that students make at home and send to me for evaluation sound like garbage. Like they were made on some of Thomas Edison’s wax tubes.
