do online students cheat more?

Professors combat cheating in online classes

This article lists some ways that online classes are trying to prevent cheating:

1. control the time when students take exams – narrow window so that everyone’s taking it at the same time

2. use a remote proctor (using web cameras)

3. use a exam proctoring service for fee (like ETS)

4. make exams tougher and make it open note (having closed book exam for online class, of course, doesn’t make any sense)

5. make the final exam an in-person, proctored exam
