Speaking with others while taking the test
Having another person with you or near you out of camera view
Having another person (not the student) actually taking the test
Other behaviors or body language that suggests improper assistance during the test
Environment—For the environment video, the surroundings instructors need to view are the desk on each side of the
monitor and the wall or area behind the monitor facing you. If the camera is an integral part of the monitor, please
maneuver it to pick up these areas. The rest of the room is not as important, instructors can see most of that during
the regular test-taking.
Avoid Low light—you must have enough light in the room to illuminate your face. If the instructor cannot see who is
taking the exam, it raises suspicions.
Avoid Backlighting–same as above; if you are in front of a window or other bright light, the instructor cannot clearly
see you’re your face.
Violations—Students found to be violating the dishonesty behaviors are subject to the penalties specified in the
Academic Dishonesty Policies
Notice: If, during the test, you believe you may have engaged in a behavior that could be misinterpreted, please feel
free to send a BlackBoard email to the instructor explaining the issue.
