When you are preparing to take a proctored exam, you must take a photo of yourself using your webcam to verify your identity. You will receive a prompt to take a photo of yourself using your webcam.
- Follow the instructions in the Secure Browser window to position yourself in front of your webcam. Optimal camera positioning varies with each computer, but generally the best position for a headshot is approximately 12-18 inches (30-45 centimeters) from the camera, with your head centered relative to the computer screen.
- When you are ready to take the photo, select Take User Photo.
There is a countdown before the camera takes the photo.
- Preview and confirm that your photo is clear, and can be used to verify that you are the same person as in the photo ID.
- If the photo is clear, select the checkbox and select Confirm User Photo.
If the photo is not clear, select Retake User Photo to try again.
When you have completed all the setup and verification steps, you will be redirected to the exam page. You may be prompted to re-login, complete login to be directed to the exam page. You have successfully set up the proctoring software, and the software has started recording a proctoring session in the Secure Browser.
Note: You must not close this Secure Browser page until you have finished your exam.
