Instructions to perform a proper 'room-and-desk' scan

At Delft University we have strict regulations on how to perform a 'room-and-desk' scan prior to your online proctored exam.

In order to verify your compliance to our exam situation requirements, you need to perform the ‘room-and-desk’ scan. To perform this scan you can either use a separate webcam or an integrated webcam in combination with a mirror (or a reflecting surface). Before you start filming, prepare your desk top and room, making sure all materials that you are allowed to use are placed on your desk and all other items on your desk or within arm’s reach are removed. Also remove written text from the wall
Below you find a description for the different scan procedures.  You are free to choose which you prefer.

Use of a separate webcam

  1. Sit down at your desk, take the camera in your hand and start filming. 
  2. Move your chair backwards from the desk
  3. Point your camera towards your computer screen and keyboard.
  4. Film your complete desk displaying the different items on your desk: take an overview shot and close in on the items.
  5. Point the camera towards the ceiling and slowly move downwards towards the ground. Show the ground beside your chair and under the desk.
  6. Point your camera on the wall to your left and slowly turn 360° displaying all sides of the room. Should there be writing on the wall you cannot remove, make sure it is clear to the proctor that it is not related to the exam.
  7. Place the camera back on top of your computer screen in a position that during the exam your face stays visible.
  8. Stop filming and continue the authentication process.

Use of an integrated webcam on a laptop (The mirror preferrably the size of a postcard*)

  1. Move your chair backwards from the desk, take the mirror in your hand and start filming.
  2. Point the mirror towards the camera. Tilt the mirror left to right and top to bottom to give a view on your opposite wall, the computer screen and keyboard. Put away the mirror.
  3. Grab your laptop in order to scan your complete desk displaying the different items on your desk. Move slowly.
  4. Point the camera the ceiling and slowly move downwards towards the ground in front of and under the desk. Show the floor beside your chair and under the desk.
  5. Point the camera on the wall to your left and slowly turn 360° displaying all sides of the room. Should there be writing on the wall you cannot remove, make sure it is clear to the proctor that it is not related to the exam.
  6. Point the camera in a position that during the exam your face stays visible.
  7. Stop filming and continue the authentication process.

*If you do not have a mirror you can use the reflecting surface of your tablet or cell phone (switched off). The bigger the surface the better.
