Authentication: Do you know who your students really are? A conversation about ideas.
The Issue: Higher Education Opportunities Act 2008 Section 495 of the HEOA 2008: (ii) the agency or association requires an institution that offers distance education or correspondence education to have processes through which the institution establishes that the student who registers in a distance education or correspondence education course or program is the same student who participates in and completes and receives credit for the course.
What did we do?
Clarification, please. The Conferees [legislators] expect institutions that offer distance education to have security mechanisms in place, such as identification numbers or other pass code information required to be used each time the student participates in class time or coursework on-line. As new identification technologies are developed and become more sophisticated, less expensive and more mainstream, the Conferees anticipate that accrediting agencies or associations and institutions will consider their use in the future. JOINT EXPLANATORY STATEMENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF CONFERENCE:
1)Requires institutions to verify the identity of a student who participates in class or coursework by using, at the option of the institution, methods such as – (i) A secure login and pass code; (ii) proctored examinations; and (iii) New or other technologies and practices that are effective in verifying student identification; (2) Makes clear in writing that institutions must use processes that protect student privacy and notify students of projected additional student charges associated with verification of student identity, if any, at the time of registration or enrollment. Final Language says we have options. Higher Education Act Application of standards in reaching an accreditation decision.
What??? Translation: We dont have to employ invasive measures and the accreditation agencies have to ensure that colleges have processes established that ensure that the student we registered is the student taking the course. We have do develop processes! We have to adopt the processes! They have to be written down someplace! (Evidence) Everyone has to follow them!
What will be asked in Accreditation? Has authentication of student identity been a common institutional practice to date? In Policy: Is it treated separately or as part of academic honesty/integrity policies. In Practice: Is authentication left to the individual instructors discretion and responsibility, or is done or enforced by institutionally mandated practices?
