Completing a BioSight-ID exam

Step 1: Locate your exam

Step2: Launch BioSight-ID Monitoring

A window will pop up. This window will monitor you throughout your exam.
Closing the BioSight-ID popup after validating your BioSig-ID password will result in a policy violation. Do not close this popup until you are done with your test.

Step 3: Allow Camera and Microphone access

Click "Ready to proceed" and allow access to your camera and microphone. You will be unable to continue unless your browser can access both camera  and microphone.

Step 4: Position yourself in frame

The camera should show your entire face from Chin to top of head.
Make sure that you are in a comfortable position as you will be expected to stay in this spot for the duration of your exam.
When you are happy with your position click "ready to proceed" and switch back to your main window.
This window is un-blurred for you so that you are able to line up your face easily. The images your instructor sees will be blurred to preserve your privacy.
