When typing in a password to allow a student to start their exam, they can see the text being entered.
This is a security issue for our Testing Center.
Hi Kip Butts,
You correctly point out that the student access code is not masked as a password would be. Depending on your workflow, there are a few options available. Here are some other current feature considerations:
These features have been used in varying combinations to exert control over the assessment. Changes to the access code between assessment periods may resolve the concern. Also, please be aware that the student access log listed on the Moderate page will show the student's access times.

Kevin Dougherty, your reply to this query doesn’t make sense. Instructors do not want to change the access code every time it is entered. The access code should remain static during the semester. It is usually shared with the testing center or in our case with Examity. Students should never be able to see this code. The field should be considered a password field, not text.
This is an easy win. Why is this not receiving your attention as a valid concern?
