New paper out: Effects of remote proctoring software on science undergraduates
this paper has come out from my collaborative work with the NSF-funded EDU-STEM network!
We studied student concerns about the use of remote proctoring software, which was commonly used during the pandemic and is still used in a variety of online and in person courses today. We assessed this using results from a survey to 11 undergraduate science courses engaged in remote instruction during the spring of 2021, spanning three American, public, research-focused institutions. The majority of students experienced technological difficulties, fears of wrongful cheating accusations, and negative mental health impacts from the use of proctoring software.
