CLARB to Offer Remote Proctoring for L.A.R.E

Testing Available Beginning in December

After conducting tests in Canada, CLARB is gearing up to allow for sections 1 and 2 of L.A.R.E to be taken at home through the implementation of a remote proctor.

The Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards (CLARB) has been working hard over the past several months to make Landscape Architect Registration Examination (L.A.R.E.) more accessible in the middle of the pandemic. In their efforts, they created a method of providing remote proctoring to candidates for certain sections of the exam. During their August administration, they ran the remote proctoring through pilot trials in the Canadian provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario, which were found to be successful. As a result, CLARB is now offering remote proctoring for all sections 1 and 2 L.A.R.E. candidates starting in December.


In CLARB's press release, they described the process of making distant testing possible. They explained, "CLARB partners with Pearson VUE to administer the L.A.R.E. and remote-proctored sections 1 and 2 will be administered through Pearson VUE's OnVue platform. A live proctor will monitor candidates' exams through a video feed using advanced security protocols which are thoroughly explained to candidates in the registration and check-in processes. This is an exciting opportunity for candidates to be able to access sections 1 and 2 of the exam without having to visit an in-person test center within the appointment schedule offered. While remote proctoring is now an option, candidates taking/writing sections 1 and/or 2 may always choose to test in a traditional test center. Sections 3 and 4 must be taken/written in a traditional test center."
