How to Review Test Videos with Respondus Monitor

After students have completed a test with Respondus Monitor you can review the video recorded during the test for each student. Students with a high review priority will be flagged for easy identification.

Warning:  If students with high review priority due to the low facial detection, you can check students’ test duration first.   Tests that take less than 1 minute often get flagged as “high.” This situation most likely occurs in the Practice Exam.  In addition to the short test duration, the low facial detection can be flagged in the following conditions.

  • Low light
  • Busy background or the background is brighter than the face of the students (lights/lamps/window even small ones, shining behind them)
  • People walking behind
  • Low video quality
  • Too close to the camera
  • Movement in the background
  • The student’s face is turned away from the webcam or heavily cropped in the video (e.g., you can only see the student’s nose and above)
