As this story reports, "Online exam proctoring company ProctorU announced earlier this week that it will no longer send artificial intelligence-generated reports of potential student misconduct to institutions without ProctorU staff members first reviewing the footage." It raises the question: are other companies even checking on their AIs' conclusions? Probably not; they prefer to offload the work: "It's pretty standard for all proctoring companies that are offering AI-assisted or fully AI monitoring services to encourage faculty to review any flagged behavior before making any academic integrity judgements." But faculty are asking why this becomes their job.  "It's not appropriate for AI to be making decisions, and it's unfair to expect faculty to do that work."
