Webinar: Exploring Academic (Dis)Honesty and Integrity in a BYOD Environment
In this presentation you will hear a short tale of academic dishonesty, an eagle-eyed proctor, and ExamSoft metrics. Learn how to utilize the security features and tools provided in ExamSoft to assist with ensuring that exams are delivered in a fair and honest manner. We will discuss some of the best practices and ideas that can be used to help harden a BYOD (Bring-Your-Own Device) classroom testing environment against cheating and increase exam and program integrity.
