The COVID-19 pandemic has changed all of the learning environments for our students into remote and distance learning. They’re all in remote classrooms. Unfortunately, we’ve also seen an uptick in accusations that students have engaged in online misconduct or distance learning misconduct.
How does this typically happen?
All the exams now are being done virtually. They’re not in the classroom anymore. And a lot of times with closed book exams, a student faces an accusation later that there’s something suspicious, and the school thinks that they’ve cheated by going online, collaborating with others, and/or some other violation of the honor code regulations during that exam.
