Clear and Upload Baseline Images for ExamID

You can manage the baseline images for Exam ID if you have access to the Exam Integrity features in the Enterprise Portal or the Legacy Portal. 

Clearing a baseline image is helpful if the exam-taker's image is having problems validating. 

Note: Validation problems can be caused by shadows on the face during a baseline image, dark rooms when the image was taken, or other camera issues such as focus or facial alignment.  If the exam-taker was wearing a hat or even glasses with a lot of glare, this can cause issues when trying to validate using ExamID for future assessments.  It is recommended in these cases that you clear the baseline and ask the exam-taker to address these issues (e.g. by removing hats or glasses or reducing glare) and then retake the baseline image. 

Uploading a baseline image is a simple process.  All you need is an image in JPG format.  

Use the procedures below to clear or upload baseline images.

    Note: The baseline image is now cleared.  Your ExamID baseline circle will be blank. The exam-taker can now relaunch the assessment, and a new baseline will be requested.
