Exam Conduct Policy

ARTiBA has established policies to maintain the rigor and integrity of the AiE™ examination. The examination procedures are founded on the principle of ethical conduct, and ARTiBA adheres to the highest standards to ensure dependability and prevent misconduct. To enhance convenience, ARTiBA has implemented several security measures that enable AiE™ candidates to take the examination online.

The following are some of the most important policy areas for examinees to make note of.

  • The lighting in the examination room you choose must be bright enough to be considered “daylight” quality.
  • It's crucial to ensure a complete 360-degree room scan before the exam. This is not only a pre-exam requirement but may also occur during your exam if the proctor is concerned something new has been introduced to the exam room or space.
  • You must carry one original and valid ID proof on your person, which must be displayed and photographed during the exam check-in.
  • Ensure your device is connected to power to prevent disruption during the exam in case of an outage.
  • The exam requires you to be clearly visible on the screen, so ensure that your webcam is functional whether it's in-built or external.
  • Make sure not to change the location while giving the exam.
  • No breaks are allowed once you start the exam. You cannot leave the screen while taking the exam either.
  • Use the chat box if you need assistance during the exam. The proctor will only assist you with platform-related queries or any technical assistance you may need.

What to avoid doing during the exam

Examinees are required to adhere to all the rules and regulations. From the moment of check-in until the completion of the exam, examinees are under constant supervision. During this time, it is strictly prohibited for examinees to engage in any activities that contravene the exam regulations including but not limited to:

  • Have anybody else in the exam area till you complete the exam.
  • Have any kind of writing on the desk or walls around.
  • Communicate with anyone about the content of the exam during the session.
  • Record or reproduce the exam content in any form, by any means (written, verbal, or electronically) to any entity or person at any time.
  • Leave the exam space for any reason.
  • Use digital assistants, notes, books, electronic dictionaries, or other aids/devices.
  • Wear headphones, earbuds, or any type of earpiece or headset.
  • Have access to hand-held computers, mobile phones or other electronic devices, watches, wallets, pagers, purses, hats), bags, coats, books, notes, or any other materials.
  • Use programs such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or any other website other than the exam window, including other content on ARTiBA.org. Do note, the exam will get terminated if you switch to another tab or browser window while your exam is in process.
  • Be logged in to any external applications or mailboxes. Any notifications or pop-ups will also lead to the automatic termination of the exam.
  • Have more than one monitor or display connected to your computer/laptop. For instance, if examinees often use a laptop with a linked monitor, they need to unplug it and just use the laptop screen.

The proctor has the authority to dismiss the examinee from the exam if any of the aforementioned actions are performed during the exam. The proctor’s decision in case of any dismissal or termination of the exam will be final and binding.
