An Analysis of How Proctoring Exams in Online Mathematics Offerings Affects Student Learning and Course Integrity
Flesch, Michael; Ostler, Elliott
International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, Feb 2011
This paper presents the results of a study focused on the issue of how proctored testing affects the learning outcomes and integrity in an Intermediate Algebra course setting. The study follows a model of assessment where students in one group have taken two of their five unit exams as proctored tests along with a proctored Comprehensive Final Exam, compared to a second group who take all unit tests online, but who do complete a proctored Comprehensive Final Exam. (Contains 7 tables and 6 figures.)
