This is a completely new feature. Paper and pen are not allowed on remotely proctored testing.
Has anybody found any information about how this on-screen scratchpad works? (aside of a minimum screenshot on the instructions)
On-screen scratchpad? From where did you get that info? Is it something new?
Has anyone taken the remotely proctored test so far?
I did. It was quite inconvenient. I was unable to reduce size of the scratchpad - so it either covered the other text on the sceen up or I had to keep closing and opening it all the time. Maybe there is some feature that makes its use more friendly but I did not find it. I made a comment on this in the final survey.
