Online cheating amid COVID-19

Eren Bilen and Alexander Matros

Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization, 2021, vol. 182, issue C, 196-211

Abstract: We present evidence of cheating that took place in online examinations during COVID-19 lockdowns and propose two solutions with and without a camera for the cheating problem based on the experience accumulated by online chess communities over the past two decades. The best implementable solution is a uniform online exam policy where a camera capturing each students computer screen and room is a requirement. We recommend avoiding grading on a curve and giving students less time but simpler questions on tests.
