Online Test Proctoring

Will Kahl

As students navigate through a plethora of available resources, plagiarism and academic dishonesty continue to be major problems in academia. In an effort to curb or redefine academic dishonesty, some instructors tailor their online exams so that outside resources are permitted, thus weakening the integrity and lowering the educational standards of their exams.

Most plagiarism comes from social networking sites, Wikipedia and other online resources where students can collaborate and share work from previous classes. Approaches such as strategic exam design and online proctoring can help minimize some of these factors and ensure academic integrity.
