Cheating

Some of my students have discovered that if you do the tutorial quizzes and get the answers, then log into our class page, they will have all the correct answers for the quiz. How do you stop this???

Scott,
I think you're running into one of the limitations of the quizzing capacity. Are you familiar with google forms? What I started to do was embed my quizzes as google forms and put time limits on it as well as rotating questions and answers within the tutorial. This can be self graded with flubaroo and then you have all the information on scores and such. I know that the built in quiz is great data, and this would just be one more formative type assessment.

Are your tutorials published only to the group? If so, the quizzes should only be accessible when your students are in the group and then you have the data. Sometimes I've seen kids keep the code, join the group, get the info, leave the group. You can stop this by changing the group number to join.

All in all, some will spend so much energy just cheating that if they'd learned the material, it would take half the time!

Are you speaking about your own quizzes, or the Sophia written quizzes in the pathways?

Another option for the quizzing for yourself could be google forms with changing questions and rotating answers using timestamps and flubaroo to grade. Do you use any of these tools?
