As the coronavirus continues its spread around the world, we have all had to learn to keep our distance from one another. But this distance has been especially tough in colleges, universities and even grade school and high school, now that all classes, lessons, office hours, and even exams, are going online.
Taking classes, quizzes, tests, mid-terms and final exams all remotely and online creates special risks for students and concerns for the schools.
Taking exams online, in particular, has made professors and school administrators nervous about the increased possibility of online misconduct like cheating. Remote proctoring through various applications and dedicated browsers/test portals are being widely used and create their own host of anxieties among both students, professors and college and university administrators.
