Zoom: Verify Student Identity

Two steps to reviewing who is attending your class, and ensuring they are properly verified students.

Reviewing the Attendance Logs

To review:

  1. Go to the reports section in the left sidebar; direct link https://uwmadison.zoom.us/account/report

  2. Click on “Usage”


  1. Click on “Participants” for the class meeting you are auditing.


  1. Click on Unique Users


  1. Verify that all participants used their @wisc.edu Zoom account.  This account is only accessible via NetID/Password and Multifactor meeting the standard of verifying that student was in attendance.


  1. Contact participants who did not use their @wisc.edu account and have them sign in through https://uwmadison.zoom.us/ in the future.

Important, your Zoom sessions must require authenticated users for audit log.

To turn on:

  1. Go to https://uwmadison.zoom.us/meeting#/upcoming

  2. Edit the Scheduled course meeting in Zoom

NOTE: If you haven’t already created a repeating course meeting in Zoom, you’ll need to enable the authenticated user requirement for each new zoom meeting.
