|This email is in regard to a feature within D2L that may be exploited by students to cheat on quizzes and exams.SUMMARY
D2L allows students to re-enter a quiz after leaving the quiz for any reason. This feature is useful for recovering from internet connection problems or other disruptions. This feature can be exploited by two students, one in the classroom and one outside of the classroom, to enter a quiz or exam in quick succession. The second student (the re-entrant student) can then take the quiz on behalf of the student in the classroom while both are connected to the same quiz. The instructor can make such collaboration difficult but cannot completely prevent it.
We are actively investigating along with D2L methods of addressing this issue. We don’t expect to be able to completely prevent such behavior due to undesirable consequences for other students, but we are working on detecting it so appropriate notifications can be made and action can be taken quickly.
If you need more information on the issue, prevention, and possible solutions, please contact your local D2L System Administrator or Dick McMullen at firstname.lastname@example.org or Chuck Morris at Chuck.Morris@so.mnscu.edu.

Both digital and information literacy are underpinned by critical thinking and evaluation.
