The MPE Examination Regulations
The MPE is a 4-module proctored online, CLOSED BOOK exam. It encompasses four 180-minute examinations, each exam covering one of the modules as outlined below:
Each exam will be comprised of a combination of Multiple Choice, Fill in the Blanks and Short Answer questions.
YOU HAVE TO PASS THE FOUR EXAMS IN ONE SITTING
The examination will begin at the allotted time Connect. Candidates starting their examination late must complete the examination within the remainder of the time allotted, i.e. no additional time is given if late.
Review sessions are Mandatory for all writers
You must achieve a minimum grade of 60% in each module.
MPE results will be communicated, no later than 30 days after the last exam (Data Analytics).
Only the person writing the exam can be in the room
MPE has some workspace requirements if you are taking the test from home.
These include the room being walled with a closed door and no one else being in or entering the room while the test is being written.
No electronic devices or books, only pen and paper for notes
A plea of accident or forgetfulness shall not be accepted under any circumstances in the case of any breach of the rules.

Proctorio requires the use of the Google Chrome web browser and you need to use/install the Proctorio extension. Proctorio is active when you log in to the exam and is gone when you log out. During the exam, a system of computers captures your movements and sends your video and other data to your instructor for review. Proctorio will flag activity that might not be allowed. Your instructor will then be able to review the video and data to decide if any action is necessary.
Proctorio has no file access of any kind. Proctorio cannot and will not access any of your personal files or documents.
During an exam Proctorio may take screenshots of your desktop, detect the number of computer monitors connected to your computer, or record your web traffic. This information will only be recorded if the professor has enabled it within the exam settings. The information is stored with zero-knowledge encryption, which means the data is encrypted both in transit and at rest.
Once an exam is completed, Proctorio no longer has access to this information.
It is impossible for anyone at Proctorio or any of its affiliates to view exam recordings. They are only accessible to authorized users at RPA.
Proctorio never stores academic information from any of its users.
Hardware/ Software Requirements
Candidates will need a webcam with a microphone (internal or USB), their ID, the Google Chrome browser, the Proctorio extension, and a quiet private location with a reliable internet connection. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure these requirements are met.
WHAT IF I HAVE A TECHNICAL PROBLEM?
Check to make sure that you are 1) using the Chrome browser and 2) have the proper extension installed. If you continue to experience technical issues, Proctorio offers 24/7 technical support to students via email email@example.com.
WHO ULTIMATELY DETERMINES IF CHEATING HAS OCCURRED?
Just like a traditional class exam, this is determined by the module instructor.
