With the move to virtual learning nearing its one-year mark, preventing online cheating and how to approach online proctoring have consistently been at the top of educators’ concerns.

And while COVID-19 isn’t the origin of online learning, it definitely forced many institutions to come up with plans to meet the virtual learning needs of students with vastly different priorities outside of school.

As learning moves online and physical campuses remain shut down (or reopen for all or some students and then shut down again as COVID cases increase), instructors must pinpoint how to navigate assessments and ensure academic integrity, honesty, and online security during online exams.
