Today in class a comment came up that a professor can see what new tab you are opening during a test or quiz? Is this true?
Hi, Maggie Copenhaver.
The best advice I can offer is: don't cheat and don't do anything shady. If you're not supposed to access other materials during the quiz: don't. Whether your professor can see what you're doing or not is irrelevant and beside the point. Best of luck in your academic endeavors!
Also, for the instructors---no technological solution will deter students determined to cheat. Even if you get access to some eye-tracking software (so that not only you lock down browsers from accessing other content, you know when students look at something that is not the test/quiz), it takes no more than 5 minutes' thinking to find a workaround.
It's instructors' job to design the course so that cheating like this offers no/little advantage to a student.
