Can Ap Classroom Detect Cheating?

If you’re using any device or account managed by your University, the University management will obviously have access to your account activity on that particular device. No the teacher will not be informed if you are using your own device. As Google Form has no such type of functionality. However institutes may choose to use third party apps for example auto proctor which integrate with Google Form to provide such a monitoring facility.

So in a nutshell if you are using Google Forms directly, then teacher will not be notified however if using with a third party then teachers may be notified.

If you are using a Chromebook managed by your institute, your teacher will have the ability to lock your device while you give a quiz.

Here is what happens when the quiz is in lock mode:

  • Students can’t open other browser tabs for cheating.

  • The teacher will be notified through email if a student exits the quiz or opens any other tab.

  • Unmanaged devices can’t open the quiz.

  • Some extensions and keyboard shortcuts are also disabled.

Ap classroom lockdown browser

1) Download and Install LockDown Browser

  • Your instructor or institution will provide a unique download link for LockDown Browser.
  • Download and install the application.

2) Open LockDown Browser and Log In

Locate the “LockDown Browser” icon on the desktop and double-click it. (Mac users will see it in the Applications folder.)

  • Now at this point LockDown Browser may prompt you to close certain applications that are running on the computer.
  • Log in to your online course.

3) Locate the Exam

  • Locate the exam that requires the use of LockDown Browser. If your invigilator doesn’t require the use of a webcam the exam will begin immediately. You won’t be able to print, access other applications, copy, or go to other websites during the exam.
  • If you attempt to start the exam with a browser different than LockDown Browser you will see a message like the one below ‘you’ll need to exit the browser and open LockDown Browser’ instead.

4) Complete the Start-up Steps

  • If your exam requires the use of a ‘webcam’ sometimes referred to as Respondus Monitor, you will be guided through a brief set of screens prior to the start of the exam.
  • The first screen is a webcam check, where you can make sure the webcam is working properly. Additional steps may be required by your invigilator, such as showing your identification, or recording a brief video of your examination setting.

5) Take Your Exam

  • Once the exam begins, a “Recording” icon will appear at the top right of the screen.
  • Don’t attempt to exit the exam until you are finished. Additionally, you won’t be able to print, copy, access other applications, or go to other websites during the exam.
  • When the exam is submitted for grading, the webcam will stop recording and you may exit LockDown Browser.

How to get started with Google Classroom

Like other Google applications, you need a Google account to use it. But not just any Google account will do for Classroom you need a Google Apps too for Education account. This is different than your standard Google account. Follow the steps below to set one up.

Make sure you have all the appropriate permissions to set this up from your institution or department.

  1. Open a Web browser and go to classroom.google.com. You have to sign in with a Google account.

  2. If you are using a regular Google account, you will see a message that says Sorry, Classroom is only available for Google Apps for Education Users at this time. Click the Get Started with App button.

  3. On the Google Apps for Education page, you can read all about the service and instructions, or just click the Get Apps Today button in the top right.

  4. Fill out the form with your institutional information and click the tab next.

  5. Most likely, your school has a Web site and you will want to use that. Click the Use a Domain Name I Have Already Purchased option and type in the domain.

  6. Click the option next.

  7. Type in the username and password that you want to use.

  8. Type in the requested text in the picture to prove you’re not a robot, check the Read and Agree box, and click Accept and Signup.

Google creates your account and logs you in to the admin portal. From there, you’ll have to verify your domain, which means you’ll have to prove you own it. If you’re using your school’s domain, you’ll need your Webmaster’s help on that step.

If, in Step 5, you don’t have a domain that you can use, you can purchase your own through Google. A .com or .org domain costs 12 dollar per year; a .net domain costs 10 dollar. If you choose this option, you’ll be lead through the purchase process; you’ll need a credit card to charge the domain fee to.
