Does the webcam check use up some of the time allotted for the test?
Posted by Respondus Support

The webcam check sequence occurs before the test begins, so it doesn’t use any of the time allotted for the test.

However, once the exam begins, if the student exits for any reason before submitting, then desires to re-enter the exam, they will need to perform the webcam check again. Any LMS timer that might be running on the exam continues to count down during this process.
