Will They Cheat?

Cheating in online classes is
no more or less than
cheating in traditional
classes.

Math Placement Assessment

Academic Integrity Statement


Remember, the purpose of the Math Placement
Assessment is to place you in the math class that best
suits YOU.


Therefore, it is very important that only YOU
work on your tests and study plans.


The only person hurt
by cheating on the Assessment will be YOU because you
will be placed in the wrong class.


Students placed in the
wrong class often fail that class which is just a waste of
your time and money.


Therefore, take your time.


Do the
best you can on the tests.


Work hard on your study
plans.


Get placed in the right class.


Be successful at the
University of Arkansas next semester!

Honesty Policy


Test Development*

• Design questions that could not be answered easily unless
the individual has done the previous work in the course
(
Olt
, 2002);

• Have students apply personal experience when answering
questions (“Strategies to Minimize”, 2006);

• For courses that test using calculations, give each student
the same exam with numbers changed slightly (Goldsmith,
n.d
.);

• Use multiple
-
choice questions only for ungraded
assignments (
Goldsmith,n.d
.);

Test Development*

• Use “rote memory” questions for “gauging the pace of the
course and identifying students who are lost” (
Hollands
,
2000);

• Use multiple
-
choice tests to emphasize important terms
and concepts. Nelson said that he permits referring to the
textbook for answers


“so much the better; for some,
sad to say, it may be the only time they read the text”
(1998, pp. 7
-
8 ); and

• Design open book questions so that they are more than
“scavenger hunts” for correct answers (
Golub
, 2005).

Test Procedures*

• Do not make a test available until the day you want
students to begin taking it (
Hollands
, 2000);

• Assign a password to each exam and make it available to a
student just prior to his attempt (
Olt
, 2002);

• Use several short quizzes to make it difficult for students
to get constant help (
Olt
, 2002);

• Use multiple
-
choice exams for practice testing only
(Ritter, 2006);

Test Procedures*

• Allow multiple attempts, making testing a learning
experience (Ritter, 2006);

• Set time limits (Ritter, 2006);

• Monitor beginning and submission times for students in
each section(
Steuver

& Harter, 2004);

• Routinely compare student answers (Rowe, 2004);

• Use multiple forms of exams, randomizing questions from
a large pool; and

• Randomize the answers on multiple
-
choice questions
(Rowe, 2004).

Alternative Assignment


Is a
test

the best way
or only way to measure
if a student has mastered
the material?
