Students will need a web camera and microphone and will need to download a browser extension from SmarterProctoring. Students may be prompted to change some browser security settings and then restart Chrome the first time they use SmarterProctoring. Students should plan to take the test in a well-lit space to ensure a good recording of their test session.
