This table attempts to present a continuum of measures you can implement. While the spectrum of options ranges from least to most the precise options you may decide to implement will vary based on the course, student population, and outcomes you are looking to implement. Please do not hesitate a conversation with one of our TLT Staff to decide the types of measures you need to implement.

Use Time Limits on Quizzes Password Protected Quizzes & change password after everyone is in the quiz Use Respondus LockDown Browser
Take attendance before beginning quiz. Set timed enforced quizzes. Check each student submission before they can leave class.
Make quiz unavailable after everyone has started quiz. Change password after everyone is in quiz and don't tell students new quiz password. Use a Question Library and build a Random Section of quiz questions so everyone sees a completely unique quiz.
Emphasize in your academic honesty policy that you and Information Technology Services are aware of these exploits, that student online activity during D2L quizzes and exams is being logged, and that you have access to that information.
