Before COVID-19 happened, students usually took tests in their classrooms. Even when teachers could keep an eye on their students while students took their tests, they took precautions to make sure that their students were not cheating. Students are now taking tests from home because of COVID. However, the worry about students cheating on tests hasn’t disappeared. The way teachers keep students from cheating has changed. Enter classroom management software.
What is Classroom Management Software?
Classroom management software allows teachers to manage and monitor their students’ devices in real-time. Some features that classroom management software, like Vision, include, are
• View Student Screens – See everything your students see on their computers. At a glance, see who is on task and who needs assistance.
• Share Teacher’s Screens – Facilitate learning by sharing your screen on every student device. No need for projectors and handouts – give everyone a front-row view.
• Showcase Student – Students can display their screens directly on the other student computers, practicing their presentation skills, and enhancing collaboration.
• Blank Screens – Refocus student attention with the push of a button, locking screens, and keyboards.
• Web Filter – You decide which websites are available or off-limits.
Limiting Your Students Ability to Cheat
Some students are tempted to cheat on tests. One way that students may try to cheat is by browsing the internet for answers to the questions on the test. Classroom management software allows you to lock your students onto the site they are taking their test on, like Kahoot, and keep them from browsing any other sites. With Vision, if a student tries to navigate to another website, their screen is locked, and they are directed to back to the site the test is on.
