Knowledge, Learning, Community

The argument is essentially that online proctoring is not essential because "the exams or tests themselves are not essential." That, asserts Matt Crosslin, is because "quizzes, tests, exams, assignments (cannot) measure learning or skill mastery. Not directly at least." In his own classes his assignments "revolve around projects that have students creating artifacts that match closely what they would do in a real life position in our field." And if you think about it, there's no proctoring or plagiarism detection system in the workplace - and no need for one.
