Cheating has been an ongoing problem with online courses. And when the student cheats, it defeats the purpose of the online course: In the end, they don't learn anything. It's horrible for the new generation of learners, and we can't let this problem go as it currently stands... You'll more accurately understand what I mean if you'd take a look at this heart-wrentching post by @MissTeacherLady16 on this thread: http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/5137a46fe4b01c4790d01ba4 @AravindG and I figured that there must be something to be done about it, so I winged up this project, currently entitled "The Cheating Project". The goal of this project is obvious: to stop the excessive cheating going on, when "learning". I'd love to have suggestions about this project, how to go about it, and the demo which I programmed currently resides on http://www.dumbsearch.com/thecheatingproject

@umarsBack we just started with this! It takes time to make a foolproof project ..the demo is put up so that you understand what we intend to do in the project .

DEMO OF THE CHEATING PROJECT Science test (no cheating): 1. Do pigs fly ? Yes. No. Note: where this project is going, well, I've decided that after I've perfected this concept, I could release this as a cut-and-paste JavaScript solution for online courses to try to stop cheating as much as possible. First, I'd love to receive ideas. Currently blocked/reported actions: - Right clicking to research on services like Google, or to cut-and-paste for cheating. - Physical mouse actions, like minimizing the window, or closing/opening a tab, for cheating. - Keyboard shortcuts, like miniming the window, or closing/opening a tab, for cheating. Contact me at dumbsearch@icloud.com if your interested in contributing. You can also drop ideas on the OpenStudy thread. You're welcome :3 Don't quite work when disabling Javascript :D

I do support the project tho :P (I thought online schools already had something against this o.o) I mean during my state mandated test, I was part of a team that could take it online. There was no way to cheat :P

  • AravindG
But thats not the case happening here :(

Haha, it's still new. I've sure it can improve :-).

True :-).
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
Yes, it's still a work in progress... Thank you @opcode for your feedback. I have noticed, however, that online tests, like the Scranton Test, as well as some online courses like OmegaMath and Keystone, they have no protection whatsoever, and others like Advanced Academics have very little. I'm gonna work for a safe-proof when JavaScript is disabled... any other way of getting past ?

well i tried to open a new tab ..then google chrome showed dialog ..then i checked prevent site from opening additional dialogs and i could get away from it
mathslover
  • mathslover
Good work @dumbsearch2 . Really good...
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
Yes, but if you do that, you're stilled reported @AravindG , as explained by the dialog box.

Thank you, @mathslover . :)

oh i see :)
dumbsearch2

@umarsback Before saying that this project is a total failure, I am curious how you opened the new tab... this would be a lot more constructive to tell me how, as I could correct this issue... if it's by disabling JavaScript, well that is currently getting fixed.
UmarsBack
  • UmarsBack
ok.
AravindG
  • AravindG
@Preetha what do you think about our project :)
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
I've just released a new version of The Cheating Project, which now reports disabling JavaScript... Disabling JavaScript could hinder the abilities of the cheating protection... As always, the URL is here: http://www.dumbsearch.com/thecheatingproject/ Report any loophole, I think this is getting really good! ^_^

@dumsearch Did you mention me somewhere, it said you did?

anonymous

it took me forever to get out of the demo. :o
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
yes thats the point and if you try, you get reported ^_^ It's a demo for a real-life situation It's a success if it's hard ^_^
anonymous
  • anonymous
it DID say i can stop the page from displaying additional pop ups. and that's how i got out.
anonymous
  • anonymous
@dumbsearch2 Its good!
UmarsBack
  • UmarsBack
i would so fail all of my homework and exams if this is successful. just saying.
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
Yes, you'll be able to get out, but as the alert warned, you will be reported if you persist. @brookie5150
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
Thank you @erdog82
anonymous
  • anonymous
but i really like the concept of it. how will it "inform your teacher"?
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
it will contact the provided address for whoever the course or administrator specifies to notify.

Opcode
  • Opcode
I just realized something... Download page as .html Disconnect your internet. Open it... No security :3
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
why would there be no security ? @opcode
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
besides, in most cases you won't be able to submit your test offline if you do that you're saying that they could right-click the link, download it... but what if each question is on a different page, and they'res no link, just a button ? there only getting one question when they download
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
and so your saying that they'd look up the answers on the downloaded file, and then go online to submit it ?
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
besides, the downloaded file would still retain it's security, as far as I know
Opcode
  • Opcode
You can still download it... CTRL+S or access it from the menu tab of GC/IE/FF/NS And it wouldn't... I've already tested it.
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
it would report you when you try to near the top of the page ^_^
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
you get an alert besides, when you click ctrl, it gives you also gives you an alert
Opcode
  • Opcode
It didn't report me :3
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
really ? which browser ?
Opcode
  • Opcode
FF/IE
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
the teachers woudn't be notified if they downloaded it... but how would the students know that ? isn't this overkill? besides, how would they download the file ?
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
weird works great on safari gonna check this out...
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
oh dear! your right! it only works in safari !
Opcode
  • Opcode
Okay. Another bug. If you refresh the page and quickly move your mouse to the url. You can open tabs with out detection... As well as download the page etc.
AravindG
  • AravindG
opcode nice spotting ..keep going :D
Opcode
  • Opcode
Also web about text based browsers?
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
text based browsers ? most courses require javascript lets not go that far xD
mathslover
  • mathslover
I used to do this spotting in my friends's copy when a teacher checks that I just say " Sir, there is the mistake !!! " and he just fills the complete work with red pen : ) I used to like that and tease them but just when I was a child. Though what opcode is doing is really nice!!! as it will help the @dumbsearch2 project be successful .

stupid security in chrome blocks me from preventing tab actions via shortcuts!#@$
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
ah disabled cut&paste
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
but opening tabs seems not to be disabled via shortcuts on chrome

Coolaid.
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
Well, at least it blocks keyboard actions on Safari, but I'm still unable to get it working on Chrome... http://www.dumbsearch.com/thecheatingproject/
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
I added further protection on copy+paste.
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
@karatechopper Any suggestion ?
yrelhan4
  • yrelhan4
how do you guys do that? :O good job. keep going and all the best. :D

  • dumbsearch2
Thank you, @yrelhan4 :)

@Opcode It currently works best on Safari But I improved the copy+paste protection on Chrome

@dumbsearch2 i founded a flaw...i used shortcut key for minimizing and then i could use a different browser to open openstudy !
Opcode
  • Opcode
Windows key + tab :3
AravindG
  • AravindG
^^exactly
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
erm
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
well woudn't it be harder since it's not possible to copy+paste ?
AravindG
  • AravindG
hmm.. if its a small question the user can easily type that out
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
yeaa I can't really do anything about those deep, deep windows controls
AravindG
  • AravindG
hmm... Assuming the student is not that good with shortcut keys All izz well !
AravindG
  • AravindG
@Opcode any suggestions on that ?
Opcode
  • Opcode
Yes. Create your own browser. And block all shortcut commands >:D
AravindG

AravindG

:(
Opcode
  • Opcode
It's possible. I mean looking back at me state test that I took online, they had their own browser. It literately blocked ever key command, the only way was to get the teacher to approve you her computer. Which would force log you out, and then you could use the other browser. If they were serious in stopping cheating, they could easily make a system like this.
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
they could... but I still think that this is a project which COULD reduce the amount of cheating, (I just found code to detect cheating in history), and I think it would not remove the flexibility of online schooling.

The problem is you are trying to limit user actions, on their own computer, which can be illegal. you are trying to limit opening new tabs and going to new tabs when on openstudy, so how do they get out? What if they close open study, check for an answer, and then come back? We cannot try to make using the site harder, as that will make users extremely unhappy, and will kill activity on this sie.
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
Haha, no. You mistook the purpose of this project. The whole point is that this is a service which could be used on online tests, to prevent cheating. I see no practical purposes of using this on OpenStudy.
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
Oh, sorry :p. If you look at my latest post from the teacher of an online school you would see that if these schools implemented a "in house final" these students wont be cheating that much :).
