US: How teachers are sacrificing student privacy to stop cheating

By ITS Education Asia

An interesting discussion piece from Vox about the problems that educators are facing in trying to stop cheating by students taking online education.

A University of Nevada psychology professor realized an increasingly common dilemma for teachers: How to prevent his newly remote students from cheating on the quizzes and exams he’d designed to be taken in class with supervision.

One possible solution his university provided was Proctorio, an online proctoring service that uses machine learning. But he didn’t like the prospect of third-party software recording and analyzing his students in their homes. Ultimately, he decided that violating their privacy was worse than leaving a potential cheater uncaught.

A prickly dilemma being faced by educators everywhere.  How to weigh up privacy concerns with the need for academic integrity.
