You may be randomly asked to perform a room scan during your exam. If this happens, lift your webcam or laptop and slowly turn it around to give a 360-degree view of your exam environment. Do not move the camera too fast or it won't provide a clear video and you may be asked to perform the scan again. It is important to show each corner of the room and your desktop area.
Once you are finished, return your webcam or laptop as close to its original position as best you can.
If you're using a desktop computer with a built-in webcam (e.g. iMac), it might be difficult to lift and rotate the entire computer. You can either rotate a mirror in front of the webcam or ask your instructor for further instruction.
Always get clarification from your professor if you are unsure about your room scan.
Failure to perform the room scan properly may result in a violation of exam procedures.
