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. Use Canvas LMS? Filter IP Addresses - Many learning management systems have the ability to only allow a quiz/exam to be taken on campus. Change feedback setting - One of the beautiful things about accessing digitally is that exams are graded immediately and teachers can spend more time on other things. This is not a built-in option for most LMS options.
