Given what you describe - if you were the proctor watching students what would you think of the situation... So, when they contact you, you will have to present your side of the story, then a decision will be made. Why did you not just shout at the door “I am in an exam, go away” - at least the proctor could not construe those words for trying to cheat. ...

Neither Wiley nor any other system will do this for you. You could do a web search with the specific text of your questions, and solutions on an online source will show up (or at least their existence will show up), but you will have to do this yourself.

Instead, you are asking about an on-...

One should know that these "lockdown browser monitors" use a pretty loopy artificial intelligence to "determine" cheating behavior. I tested such a system in January, it was absolutely laughable what the system was reporting. Also, we managed to hack it in under 10 minutes. Your student council should be involved in deciding if such things should even be ...

Here is some general advice for when you are the subject of a an allegation of wrong-doing in the context of a university misconduct matter. Universities have procedures in place that create an orderly process for determining the nature of the allegation, obtaining relevant evidence, hearing the matter and making a determination. There is no sense in ...
