8.22 Following the declaration of the state of emergency by the Spanish government in the context of the COVID19 crisis: some indications and recommendations regarding the supervision and recording of exams:
In order to certify the student’s identity, you must take into account that if the test is done via Scala or any Google service, students must register using their personal account. Identity theft is liable to a sanction as described in the Academic Rules and Regulations. In any case, if the test is done via video conferencing and the lecturer deems it necessary, one can ask students to have their cameras on in order to certify their identity. In case of doubt, students may also be asked to show their ID card to the camera.
Lecturers are required to keep evaluation evidence of all assessed material, including all video recordings. With regard to documents, whatever support or format they are in, they must be kept for at least one whole year, as described in the academic rules and regulations. If the test is done via video conferencing, such as an oral exam, they may be recorded. The purpose of such recording is to certify the student’s online attendance and completion of the test, while respecting the principle of proportionality and preserving the student’s rights and dignity at all times and with the utmost integrity. Recordings may also be used for further exam revision. As with all data processing, we must comply with the basic principles of transparency and students must be informed that the test will be recorded before and at the beginning of the exam. Under no circumstances can such recordings be used for anything other than what is strictly related to the student’s assessment. If the purpose of the recording is only to monitor attendance, it must be deleted after the grade sheets for the respective exam sitting are signed.
If the student has to be recorded during the exam, it is recommended that he or she try to occupy most of the screen and that their location be a neutral place so that the image shows the fewest possible personal details of their environment. It is also recommended that no one else appear on the screen during recording.
