Academic Honesty

Last Updated: Aug 12, 2019 02:00PM CDT
When students take assessments, we want to know that they are taking their own tests and not receiving help from other students or sources. In essence, we want to ensure academic honesty and prevent students from cheating. 

In Naiku, there are multiple ways to discourage academic dishonesty.

1. Watch Progress - Use the Watch Progress report in Naiku to see who is taking the test. You can watch their progress on the assessment in real-time. Simply click on the "Watch Progress" button. This will show you which students have started the test and how far they have progressed. It also show you a list of students who have not started the test (listed as Missing). Reminding students that you can watch their progress can be an effective deterrent to academic dishonesty.

2. Require Access Code - Another way to prevent cheating is to not give students access to the test until they enter an access code. When you require an access code, students will be required to enter an access code (you give it to them in class right before you want them to start the test). To require an access code, check the "Access requires code" when you are creating that assessment in Naiku.

3. Lock-down Browsers - You can use lock-down browsers or apps to prevent students from going to a different web-page while taking the Naiku assessment. If your school uses Chromebooks, you can use the Naiku Chromebook app to prevent students from going to other webpages. Alternatively, you can also use a free lock-down browser created just for testing such as the Safe Exam Browser.
