Canvas Cheating

Since school is online currently, everything I teach/assign is now on Canvas. What can I use to ensure my students are cheating? Please list some websites/add-ons/anything that I can use.

Hi @MsNorthan1986 -

We recently adopted Respondus, but that's still not completely fool-proof as students could use multiple devices as they complete an assessment. My colleagues and I have worked to make more open-ended responses for students to complete, and some are even moving to more project-based learning. The application of knowledge is an independent exercise, so with written work and with the help of Unicheck (our plagiarism checker), we can tell whether or not the words or original to the student.
