If an objective exam is the best way to assess your course’s learning outcomes, there are a number of ways to discourage academic misconduct that can occur in online testing environments without relying on an external proctoring service. The costs associated with such services, technical and practical restrictions for students, and overall increased stress around test-taking are sufficient reasons to modify or replace some or all parts of an exam with alternative forms of assessment. Small but impactful modifications to your current exams can lead to more meaningful assessment of student learning while maintaining the rigor and integrity of your course.
Refer to the Conduct Exams via Canvas article in the IU Knowledge Base for recommended guidance to improving test security and use Canvas to create and administer exams/quizzes. If you have a student who requires additional time, you can provide extended time in Quiz Moderation.
