High School Seniors Easily Cheat in Flawed Online Education Program

High School Seniors Easily Cheat in Flawed Online Education Program | Rubrics, Assessment and eProctoring in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Some seniors at Atlanta’s Crim High School Googled their way to diplomas this spring, looking up the answers to test questions on the internet while enrolled in a flawed online education pilot program, teachers told the Atlanta school board.

Students in the pilot took classes in school computer labs supervised by teachers. The teachers were also available to help them with lessons, district accountability chief Bill Caritj said. Some of the seniors were catching up before graduation; others were taking courses for the first time, he said.

Addressing Academic Dishonesty in the Age of Ubiquitous Technology (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu

Addressing Academic Dishonesty in the Age of Ubiquitous Technology (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Rubrics, Assessment and eProctoring in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Key Takeaways
Technology can help fight cheating that is itself based on technology, especially with tweaking of assignments and assessments in a way that makes it difficult to cheat.
Students should be made aware of resources such as university writing centers and tools such as Endnote.
Training about copyright, plagiarism, and time management can help students succeed without feeling that they have to cut corners.
Relevant codes and policies should be clearly stated in communications such as orientation materials, student handbooks, and course syllabi to establish expectations and reduce confrontations between instructors and students.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, June 9, 2:52 PM

This Educause review is on point.  Solid common sense advice.

Steve Vaitl's curator insight, June 20, 11:57 AM

For my teaching friends or anyone considering doing writing at a post academic level. What a great resource for information on cutting down the rate of plagiarism. Much of what I see is not intentional but that makes little difference to a protective author, or the legal system.

Glad to see at Kansas City Kansas Community College we are already instituting most of these policies and practices.

Original works only.  Nice tool.

Christine Rounsevell's curator insight, June 14, 11:15 PM

This looks good but it is not free. Universities already offer it for free to their students.

Edgar Mata's curator insight, July 23, 2:56 PM

Para que los alumnos no "copien y peguen".
Esta herramienta detecta diversas formas de plagio, muy buena.

 

Nunca fue necesario que los alumnos escribieran a mano para evitar el copy-paste, ahora menos que nunca, con tantas herramientas disponibles, es preferible que el trabajo esté en formato electrónico par buscar, más rápido, de dónde obtuvieron la información.

Formative Assessments in E-Learning | Origin Learning – A Learning Solutions Blog

Formative Assessments in E-Learning | Origin Learning – A Learning Solutions Blog | Rubrics, Assessment and eProctoring in Higher Education | Scoop.it

E-learning takes the formative assessment process a step further. Because of the ability to add multimedia elements like audio, animations, video and graphics, assessments can be made a lot more engaging while appealing to the different learning styles. Instructional designers can embed assessment in instruction and accordingly steer the course to bridge the gaps between the desired outcome and what learners already know. As opposed to summative assessment where learners will only be evaluated from a pool of questions in the form of a test, formative assessments can be used to keep e-learners engaged throughout the course by regularly testing various parameters by various methods on a continuous basis.
