Strategies to Prevent and Identify Academic Dishonesty
Recently, Mark Bodo, IT Manager for East Tennessee State University College of Nursing, discussed ways we can prevent and identify this form of Academic Dishonesty using ExamSoft's testing application.
The key takeaways from his presentation include:
The cycle of students developing strategies to cheat on exams and faculties’ role in diagnosing those strategies, continues to evolve.
ExamSoft assessment tools give faculty and administrators the means to identify and stop these newly developed student approaches to cheating.
Develop pre-exam best practice strategies to minimize academic dishonesty in the exam room.
With the advent of new technologies and a connected student population, preventing students from cheating on computer-based exams has become a greater challenge. Whether it involves test banks being published online, students using remote desktop connections to bypass lock-down browsers while taking an exam, or students simply cheating off of one another in a classroom, there are ways we can prevent and identify this form of Academic Dishonesty using ExamSoft's testing application.
“Let exam takers know exactly how ExamSoft allows you to track their every move during an exam and alert you to if they have colluded with a peer or possibly are cheating—scare them straight."
