Technically, you only need to show your workspace. My TA said showing your face is not necessary. However, to answer your question, if you're using a second device (assuming you don't have a webcam), you're opening Zoom using that second device, which is pointed to your workspace, and the device you're using to take the test is pointing at you.
As far as I know, the webcam on the device you're taking the test at will be pointing at your face, and I think Respondus records you while you're taking the exam (I'm not sure though, so double check about that). Then when we open Respondus, there will be a Zoom link to our discussion section; so the second webcam will be connected to Zoom and will be used to record our workspace. I hope that helps :)
According to the email Professor Lavelle sent, we can use another device such as an ipad to show our workplace on zoom if we don't have a webcam. In this case, we will need two devices, one for doing the exam and one for showing our workplace.
With my TA session we had to use our phones because my TA had some technical difficulties and was not able to make it so you could have zoom and the lockdown browser open at the same time. If this happens again for the final. You will want to use your computer and your phone. With your phone you connect to the zoom and angle it so the camera is showing your workspace, hands, your face is not really needed. With your computer you take the test. BUT if the zoom and lock down can coexist then on your computer you can have your camera on you probably tilted a little bit down (to show your workspace) and do the test also on your computer.
