Student Assessment in the Ubiquitously Connected World

Adams, A. A.

Student cheating on university assessments from entrance exams to finals and from contract cheating on coursework to requesting exam answers using a mobile phone during the exam, has received more and more attention of late. As connection to the Internet becomes ubiquitous and computing and communications technology more embedded in our environment, it is argued that a re-focussing on providing educational opportunities is needed in higher education, rather than chasing the ever-retreating prospect of perfect, or even adequate, assessment for the purposes of qualification. This record was migrated from the OpenDepot repository service in June, 2017 before shutting down.
