Sandbagging: repeated inactivity in a training session
- Sandbagging occurs when a student purposely waits to answer training questions, or lingers on a word page without actually reviewing it.
- A session is only marked as dubious due to sandbagging if it contains three instances of 2+ minutes of inactivity.
- For more information, please see What is sandbagging?
Disengagement: very low accuracy
- Some students intentionally answer questions wrong by randomly clicking on choices.
- We understand that some students take more time to comprehend new words than others, but very low accuracy is usually a sign that the student is distracted and is just going through the motions to waste time.
- You'll notice that this behavior is often accompanied by review times of 10 seconds or less.
Cheating: using a script or looking into the code to find answers
- Some students will attempt to cheat by using a script or program to train for them.
- For more information, please see: How can Membean be sure my student cheated?
Please Note: When we detect any of the above behaviors the entire session (add all associated minutes in that session) marked dubious.
