Finalists have been announced for the inaugural CUCCIO Awards, celebrating collaboration, innovation and community building in Canadian higher education IT. Our congratulations to Fareed Teja, the lead on a recent Online Proctoring Pilot Project at the Lawrence S. Bloomberg School of Nursing that was selected as one of four finalists in the Innovation category.
The project explored online proctoring as a method to protect the academic integrity of online exam taking in an online Master of Nursing – Nurse Practitioner program. Specifically, online proctoring was implemented in online tests to ensure that students adhere to academic honesty policies, exam questions were protected, and student identification was verified. Goals of the project were to evaluate effectiveness of online proctoring to protect the integrity of online high stakes exams, collect and analyze student feedback on the process and experience, and share the results internally, institutionally, and abroad.
Fareed will be participating in the upcoming CANHEIT conference in New Brunswick, presenting on the process and results of this innovative project. Hats off!
