To ensure that there is a minimal amount of cheating in the competition, volunteers will be used as proctors throughout the competition. They will be assigned a breakout room, and will monitor the group throughout the whole competition. Proctors will listen in on their discussions also well as monitor their screens to ensure that no one is using their personal devices to look up answers and cheat.
If there are not enough proctors to be placed per room, proctors will be given access to all break out rooms and will move from room to room in order to monitor the participants’ progress.
Proctors are welcome to stay for the guest speaker panels and activates hosted after the competition.
