Do I really need a mirror behind me to take my final exam online through ProctorU?

No. There’s a ProctorU video that explains the initial setup which has led to a few of our students to think they need to take the exam with a mirror behind them the entire time. That’s not true and there is no such requirement. The video is referencing only the initial setup in which a ProctorU representative needs to see your computer screen/front of your computer so one time only you will need a reflective device. (small hand held mirror, glossy ipad, or something else that’s reflective)

You simply need something you can hold in front of you for a few seconds, so through the reflection, they can see the front of your computer/screen. It’s just to ensure you have not placed sticky notes or other reference material on the front of your device. It’s a one time requirement and once no notes have been verified you can stick the device off to the side to begin your exam.
