Membean has an optional anti-cheat option that you can enable for student assessments. This prevents students from tabbing out of the assessment, or refreshing the page to extend their time. If they do either of these things, the assessment will be marked as suspicious and immediately submitted. This article will show you how to enable this option and how it will appear to students.

Supported desktop browsers include: Internet Explorer 10 and up, Firefox 15 and up, Chrome 23 and up, Opera 20 and up, Safari 7 and up. This feature has also been tested with Apple iOS 7.1 and up, Samsung (and other) Android 4.4 and up phones. We do not support Opera Mobile nor Amazon Fire. Using outdated browsers can result in false positives or false negatives.

Enable in Teacher Preferences

From any page of your dashboard, you can access teacher preferences by clicking on the drop-down menu beneath your name, and clicking on "Profile."

Once here, you can enable the anti-cheat option through a checkbox, and then save changes.

The Suspicious Flag From a Student POV

The first time a student reloads the window while taking an assessment, they will receive a warning.

If the student then reloads the assessment again, the assessment is marked as suspicious and auto-submitted.

The Suspicious Flag from Assessment Summary

You can see if any of your students' quizzes were marked as suspicious from the Assessment Summary page.
