Extended Abstract

Paying people to do your homework, write papers, take exams, take entire courses, and complete degrees for you is turning into a big game…a very expensive game! The players are either lining their pockets or getting caught with the deck stacked against them and paying big time. Students desperate to make better grades and get degrees are paying big bucks to companies who offer these cheating services. Financial aid fraud is at an all-time high lining the pockets of people using online learning to win more opportunities to cheat the government. Schools are facing lofty fees & residual negative impacts on their enrollments of cheating scandals costing millions. Technological advances, outside pressures, unrealistic expectations, & accessibility are changing the proctoring game. Accrediting agencies and federal aid guidelines are changing the rules and schools must prioritize the responsibility of protecting academic integrity & committing the resources needed to make it happen.

What is your institution’s next move to document attendance & decrease cheating in online classes? Whether schools choose to proctor high stakes exams, rely solely on project-based learning or some combination of the two, they must have a reliable system in place to authenticate identity and deter cheating. Are you tired of trying to figure out the proctoring game & decipher the players from the “playas”? Don’t miss our session as we unveil our newly released Automated proctoring module of SmarterProctoring and learn how it works in partnership with SmarterID, student authentication system.
