What is Cheating in the Digital Age?

Tech Helpful

So I ask, what is cheating in this digital age? For instance, at our school, we use the LMS Canvas but it doesn't inherently lock a student into a quiz tab while taking a quiz so we have bought the "hack" known as Respondus Lockdown Browser as an add-on to do this. There is a little bit of irony that the hack is to prevent cheating but in this case, Respondus is what is known as a non-malicious hack that adds value to a product and the product readily accepts it.

Digital Testing Safeguards

I believe wholeheartedly that classroom management of students on devices is a digital citizenship issue. Access Codes - Codes serve as a safeguard that students cannot access exams when you are not ready for them to access it. Giving students the code right at exam time and then changing the code once everyone is in is a way to make sure different sections you teach are not accessing the exam when they are not in your presence. Easy access is eliminated.
