Two main selling points for an organization moving to digital technology are the ability to control the length of the assessment and gather data forensics. But as the use of digital technology in education advances, there is increased concern about the security of assessment. are Despite all the innovation, each year we see new threats to the security of exams. From organised question harvesting to the temptation of the individual, will we ever beat cheating? This session will explore the next steps we’ll take in the fight against test fraud. We’ll explore the trends, the drivers and the countermeasures. Lead the discussion on security in assessment.
