The "Show Your Work" feature allows students to upload hi-resolution images of worksheets they've prepared during their exam. If this setting is enabled by the instructor, the student will be given the opportunity to upload photos of their work immediately after they submit their exam.
***This feature is only available if "Respondus Monitor" has been selected as the proctoring option for the exam. ***
The instructor will first need to require "Respondus Monitor" as the proctoring option for the exam, then enable the "Show Your Work" setting under the "Advanced Settings" area.
If desired, the instructor can edit the default text that students will see when they encounter the "Show Your Work" page. To do this, click the "Edit Text" link.
It is also recommended that the instructor enable the "Additional Instructions" step in the startup sequence, and edit the message to include an explanation of the "Show Your Work" requirement, including any specific requirements that the instructor may have. This will alert students to the requirement before they begin the exam.
From the student's perspective, once they submit their exam, they will encounter a page that permits them to use their webcam to take photos of the work they desire to submit. They should point their webcam at the page, and once they're satisfied with the displayed image, click the "Take Photo" button.
If satisfied with the photo, they can click the "Use this Photo" button. Otherwise, they can click "Try Again" to re-take the photo.
If multiple pages need to be submitted to the instructor, click the "Add Another Photo" button to repeat the process for the new photo(s). Otherwise, click the "Submit Photo(s)" button.
Reviewing the Images
The submitted images will be available to the instructor in the "class results" section of the LockDown Browser Dashboard tool, next to the photo and video thumbnails.
Frequently Asked Questions
1) Is “Show Your Work” available for exams not using Respondus Monitor, or exams using “Instructor Live Proctoring?”
Answer: Respondus Monitor must be enabled for the exam in order for the “Show Your Work” feature to be available.
2) A student did not take all the necessary photos of their work before they exited the “Show Your Work” interface. Can they return to the “Show Your Work” interface and submit additional photos?
Answer: No, all photos must be submitted by the student before they exit.
3) The student claims photos were uploaded using the "Show Your Work" interface, but I cannot find those images in the "class results" section of the LockDown Browser Dashboard tool.
Answer: If photos were successfully uploaded, the thumbnails for those photos will appear above the thumbnails of the student's face and ID. But if they are not present, this means no photos of the student's work were successfully uploaded to our servers.
4) Is the student being recorded during the process of uploading photos via the "Show Your Work" interface?
Answer: The video recording ceases once the exam is submitted. This releases the webcam to be used for the "Show Your Work" interface, if enabled by the instructor for the exam.
5) Is it possible to upload a file from the student's computer?
Answer: "Show Your Work" cannot access files on the computer. It can only be used to take photos of whatever the webcam is pointed at.
