Three Simple Steps to Prevent Online Cheating Using Classroom Monitoring Tools

Posted by Angie Amburgey on May 22, 2018 at 2:02 PM



Whether it’s an impromptu quiz or a final assessment, educators can easily create a safe environment for testing using classroom management monitoring tools. To get started, follow these easy steps:

  1. Choose a classroom management solution that provides a complete view of all student desktop activity. During tests, teachers can view student screens to easily see if a student is off-task or attempting to cheat. Learn about the five activities that go undetected with most Chromebook monitoring solutions: Five things students do on Chromebooks that you can't see.
  2. Use web filtering to create a list of allowed websites. This provides educators the flexibility to select one or several websites for testing and block everything else. Teachers don't have to worry about students trying to look up answers as attempts to go to unapproved websites will be redirected back to the approved list. This allows for additional filtering beyond the school's web filter. With an easy-to-use solution like Netop Vision, educators can set up web filtering in just a few steps without involving IT.

  3. Inform students that testing is ending soon by sending a message to the entire class or a group of students. The message will stay on student screens until they click that they have seen the message.
