Writing cramps and ink-covered hands might be a thing of the past for test-takers as a 21st century version of the blue book gains popularity among UNC professors.A computer program called Securexam Student improves the quality and clarity of tests many professors have found."It's disconcerting when we ask students to put away everything and pull out a No. 2 pencil" says Charlie Green assistant vice chancellor for teaching and learning."Students actually perform better if allowed to work within their native medium - in this case the keyboard."
Students in an introductory physics class illegally gained access to two tests earlier this semester potentially altering the grades of about 140 classmates.Administrators learned of the breach last week causing PHYS 25 instructor Paul Frampton to throw out two of the semester's four tests and allow students options in weighing the remaining tests and assignments.The February 24 and March 31 tests were accessed through the Internet before their administration Frampton said.He said administrators do not know the identities of the students who obtained the test.
