I’ve heard of using the breakout rooms on Zoom as a way of proctoring tests remotely: each student is assigned to an individual breakout room and uses their web camera to display their work space (potentially also share entire computer screen) as they complete the test. In playing around with the breakout rooms so far, it isn’t clear to me whether I could actually see them all at the same time this way, or would only be able to see someone in a room if I “join the room” that they are in – and in that case, I wouldn’t be able to see any of the other students at the same time? I have ~150 students in two different sections, so being able to see more than a single individual at once is definitely needed. Thanks to all who are helping direct us and answer questions in this very unusual circumstance!
