Though many (hopefully most) students take their education seriously, there will always be a few who don’t keep their eyes on their own work. And in this day and age, we’re seeing new ways of cheating the system emerge. Jeffrey R. Young with The Chronicle of Higher Education cites one example where students used a shared Google Doc that they could view and edit while taking the test.
Educators should not have to divert time from quality instruction to worry about students who try to buck the system, which is why we want to help you beat the cheat. How?
Through our long-standing partnership with Respondus, a leading provider of secure testing solutions. Respondus has just launched a new product, Respondus Monitor, a companion tool to Respondus Lockdown Browser. Respondus Monitor uses webcam and video recording technology to ensure students don’t use inappropriate resources (like smartphones or second computers) during online, non-proctored exams. And, all of this is available through a seamless integration with Blackboard Learn.
The overall shift to online and hybrid course offerings has opened up so many educational opportunities to so many who were previously unable to participate, but it also gives cheaters new opportunities to expose holes in online testing and assessment solutions. Beating cheating is no less important than it ever was. Only now it’s less difficult.
