Before joining the Zoom room for testing, please make sure that you have downloaded Zoom to your computer. You can do this by going to the Zoom Download Page and downloading Zoom Client for Meetings. If you do not have a webcam on your computer, you will need a smartphone or tablet ready that can act as a webcam.
If you have a Chromebook, you will also need to install Chrome Remote Desktop. This Chrome extension will allow a Learning Commons staff member to remotely put in the password for the test, a feature that is available on most laptops but not Chromebooks.
Once you join the Zoom testing room, you will first enter a waiting room and may have to wait a few minutes. When it is your turn, you will be let into the Zoom Room. In this room, there is a Check-in process where you will be required to do a couple of things:
Throughout the duration of your test, you are required to share your computer screen, use your webcam to give a head and shoulders view of yourself, and keep your microphone on. Although you are not allowed to mute your microphone, it is acceptable and encouraged to turn your speaker volume all the way down to avoid any auditory distractions from other test takers or proctors in the testing room with you.

The following will be reported to your instructor: internet or power disruptions/outages, leaving testing area while test is in progress, not notifying the test proctor prior to logging out of the testing session, not responding to proctor’s inquiries while testing, and other incidents the proctor deems necessary to report, such as suspected academic dishonesty. Academic dishonesty, and its consequences, are defined in the Student Handbook on pages 36 - 38.
