FAQs

What happens if someone speaks or walks behind me while I’m writing a remotely-proctored online exam?
It will be important for students to inform their instructor if they have no access to a recommended examination environment (ie. they can't access from somewhere quiet and private.) These locations may create false violations in the monitoring software including movements in the webcam recording field of view or in the audio monitor. False flags will not prevent the student from continuing in an exam. Instructors will review monitoring logs after the exam and can identify and clear any false flags.
