Method of conducting the exam The test takes place with the help of the Teams platform In short:

1. Open Teams

Check that you have audio and microphone of the working PC and an external webcam or alternatively another device for video input (smartphone / tablet / other PC).

If you use your smartphone as a webcam, take care to connect it to the power supply, do not trust the battery life.

2. Preparation of the workplace

It is essential to set up the workplace in a room free of other people.For the duration of the test, the entry of others into the room is not allowed.

It is also essential to disable all cloud synchronization clients (Dropbox, Onedrive, Google Backup & Sync), taking care that this is visible from the icons in the taskbars. It is also forbidden to use any messaging client (Whatsapp web, Telegram web, Twitter, etc,) and the like, both on PCs and on smartphones, tablets, etc.).

You need to use a single screen. Before the start of the test, it will be verified that multiple screens are not connected. The Commission will be able to carry out random checks. For this reason, it is advisable to move previously any private element (photos, messages ...) that you do not want to show to the classroom supervisors.

3. connection

Make sure you have a stable connection, preferably via cable. Make sure to block other uses that could weigh down the network (updates, video downloads etc.). It is advisable to have the smartphone ready in "hotspot" mode to share the connection in order to have a "plan B" in case of loss of the main connection.

Staying always online is essential to ensure the correctness of the exam. Short, occasional disconnections due to network problems will be tolerated if limited in number and duration.
