Wiley—Academic Integrity In the Age of Online Learning 8 10. Open-Book Exams This type of exam not only decreases cheating, but also allows you to test higher levels of learning. Keep in mind, however, that students may think that they don't need to study if an exam is open book. Practice some example questions with students to help them understand what they'll need to study in their notes and other course materials. Open-book exams and assignments can also reduce student stress, which may make it less likely for students to cheat. 11 Ultimately, it's important to hold students to the same academic standards—no matter how their education is delivered—and make sure your expectations are clearly communicated.
